LeBron James: Cavs star sets ASTONISHING new National Basketball Association record despite 76ers defeat

Monroe finished with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his second career triple-double.

Cleveland was led by Lebron James, who was determined to put his stamp on this game.

In one of the biggest games in recent Philadelphia history, the Sixers nearly squandered a 30-point lead, surviving a huge comeback from the Cleveland Cavaliers to squeak out a two-point victory, 132-130, a 13th win on the bounce.

John Wall was excellent throughout the contest, scoring 28 points and dishing out 14 assists, but he was abysmal down the stretch.

After watching the Wizards shoot 64 percent (27-of-42) from the field during the second and third quarters, the Cavaliers then appeared to see their chances of winning disappear as the Wizards outscored them 14-5 to start the fourth and took a 104-87 lead.

With AP Photos.LeBron James scored 13 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter as the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter to stun the Washington Wizards 119-115 on Thursday night. Clashes against cellar dwellers Dallas and Atlanta should be wins, setting up a must-watch clash with the current Eastern Conference seventhh-seed Milwaukee. Philly closed out the game as Redick hit a couple of jump shots and both Redick and Ilyasova sank clutch free throws.

There has been plenty of speculation that LeBron James will leave the Cavaliers at the end of the current National Basketball Association season, but could Cleveland fans be left in the lurch because of The King's problem with the President. T.J. McConnell only played five minutes.

A billboard on 7th Avenue between 31st and 32nd streets - facing the main entrance to Madison Square Garden - sets a goal of getting LeBron James to sign with the Knicks this summer, equipped with the hashtag #KINGJAMESNYC18. James has scored 30 points in 429 games, tying Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for fifth place in league history. The dude is supposed to be a superstar; he can't let his team piss away one of their biggest wins of the year, and he certainly can't choke on three straight possessions with the game on the line.

Ben Simmons was not the best player on the court but came pretty darn close to looking like he was.

Hard to give this crew a grade tonight because they did a solid job overall, but that was overshadowed by two absolutely disgusting calls.

Down 129-132, James was fouled on a three by Robert Covington. No matter the seed, the road to the Finals goes through Cleveland.While it's a commendable approach, one born on past successes and Playoff LeBron, having the easiest path is always best. Not only was the call incorrect, Fraher also awarded Green two free throws, which was also incorrect.

So why not take the real long shot.

He has also been the NBA Finals MVP three times while bettering that with the NBA MVP award on four occasions.
