LeBron James orchestrates massive 4th quarter comeback vs. Wizards

LeBron James orchestrates massive 4th quarter comeback vs. Wizards

James orchestrated a 10-0 run as part of a larger 29-11 run, eventually knotting the game up at 110 apiece. Updates with new lead, quotes, details. His mentor, LeBron James, was a force as well, with 44 points, 11 boards, and 11 dimes himself, but it was Simmons and his squad that emerged with the upper hand. Washington led 104-87 with 7:35 left.

LeBron James doesn't care whether you're male or female. His time. Closing time. With 1.9 seconds remaining, Robert Covington fouled James on the wing as he turned to launch an off-balance triple off the dribble.

James was a monster on the stat sheet throughout the night in a Cleveland comeback that came up just short, as the three-time National Basketball Association champion had a game-high 44 points on 17-of-29 shooting from the field, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and two steals.

Much of the damage has come by way of the three-ball, but Simmons got into the act with a monster dunk past LeBron. "That's just my mindset". "For us to come all the way back it shows what we are capable of doing". "He wants to be great", James said of Simmons.

There's reportedly a chance that Jimmy Butler could play for the Timberwolves against the Nuggets on Thursday night, after dealing with a torn meniscus for several weeks. "You see them trending in a very competitive winning way". He had 20 points and 11 assists at that point.

It cost the Cavs in Philly.

Washington is just not playing well in the last month of the season. It was clear after that basket nothing was going to stop James from completing his comeback against the Wizards.

The 76ers of the past and present sure loved LeBron - except when he almost brought the Cavs back from a 30-point deficit. "I got to line it up and shoot it". Wall said. "I tried to find a teammate for a wide open shot".

The Wizards lost narrowly and, as mentioned above, led by 17 late.

John Wall missing around eight weeks this season is a major reason why the Wizards have not played up to expectations. Friday marks the fourth consecutive game he's been ruled out. And a recent report from Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer says LeBron is only considering four teams this summer - the Cavaliers, Lakers, Rockets, and 76ers.

More important, the Sixers' triumph moved them into sole possession of third place in the Eastern Conference with three games to go in the regular season. Lue was sorry to learn Celtics guard Kyrie Irving will miss the playoffs. He hit a big corner 3 in the 4th and finished with 13 points in 22 minutes off the bench.

Lue said he felt good in his second game back following a medical absence that cost him nine games.
