LeBron James pulled Ben Simmons in for a hug, and smiled and laughed in a brief chat with Joel Embiid.

Allen Iverson watched the scene with a big grin and high-fived a few fans.

At 33, James is the youngest to ever reach 31,000 points getting to the milestone despite Cleveland Cavaliers being defeated 132-130 by Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers sank 30 of 53 shots in the first half and led by as many as 30 in the second quarter. But he had a costly turnover in the closing seconds and the Wizards couldn't put away the Cavs down the stretch.

Roughly halfway through the second quarter, the Sixers have seen their lead balloon to almost 30 points and have been dominating James and the Cavaliers in every possible way.

"He's a student of the game".

"We dug ourselves that hole", James said after the loss.

Clean sheet crucial for Reds and Oxlade-Chamberlain
Liverpool have taken a 3-0 lead in their Champions League first-leg quarter-final against Manchester City at Anfield. I have to improve to get to where I want to get and to be as good as I hope to be so I keep working on it".

Most of those wins have come at the hands of the Eastern Conference bottom feeders, but on Friday night, the Sixers got a chance to show out against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game with major playoff implications.

JJ Redick poured in 28 points and the Sixers' bench outscored the Cavaliers bench 56-25 on the back of 23 from Marco Belinelli and a had his best game as a 17-point, 11 rebound double double from Ersan Ilyasova. They are 7-3 this season when he starts.

James suddenly remembered in the second half he needed to audition his stuff for his potential summer suitor. It's also mentioned that LeBron James hasn't necessarily left the teams he's joined in the best condition since that team becomes "about LeBron" when he's there and in disarray after he leaves. He made the first, missed the second and his intentional miss on the third failed to go in on a Cavs tip at the horn.

After allowing Wizards power forward Markieff Morris to convert a three-point play, Korver caught a pass from James in the left corner of the floor and buried a game-tying three-pointer with 1:19 to play in regulation.

When asked about the atmosphere and the crowd support, James wasn't surprised in the least.

"They completely understand that it's now April and we're going to blink and be playing in the playoffs", 76ers coach Brett Brown said. Assuming they can hit their stride heading into the postseason, they could very well upset any of the top three seeds.

Toronto Raptors clinched the No.1 seed in the east after their 92-73 rout of the fifth-placed Indiana Pacers. Taurean Prince led the Hawks with 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting, while Tyler Dorsey added 15 points and five boards. Irving was excellent as ever this season for the Celtics, who led the Eastern Conference standings for most of the season with him fit and firing at a 24.6 points per game rate.
