  • Wells Fargo Center at 7:00 p.m. ET

The biggest game of the season yet-the 76ers vs Cleveland Cavaliers-was also a complicated one for Sixers fans. "We are playing well".

Taj Gibson contributed 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots as the Timberwolves ended a two-game slide. Embiid is expected to return in time for the first round, and should not have much difficulty bouncing back from a fractured orbital bone.

"We just played our game, didn't let the hype bother us and we stuck together".

With a buzz in the city over the Sixers that hasn't been felt since the pre-Process days, they romped toward a 30-point lead over the Cavs in the first half and scored 78 points at the break.

Greg Monroe came off the bench and had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to notch his second career triple-double.

Andhra Pradesh special status: TDP MPs detained for protesting outside PM's residence
However, it was never taken up for discussion due to continuous disruptions in the Parliament . The TDP members described their eviction from the Rajya Sabha as an "insult to Andhra Pradesh".

Smith has averaged 15.7 points and 7.0 assists in his last seven games, hitting 40 percent of his 3-point shots. James, who went on to make the first free throw and miss the second, leading to the intentional miss on the third, told ESPN after the game he believed Covington actually fouled him on the floor before he was in his shooting motion.

"We dug ourselves that hole", James said after the loss. Three billboards, paid for by a Pennsylvania company, popped up recently in OH urging James to sign with the 76ers this summer.

It's Philly. Take a guess which reaction won.

"It says, 'LeBron, we don't want you.' We don't want you, we don't need you".

He brought the sellout crowd to their feet on his missed dunk.

Simi Garewal, on the other hand, believes that it was not Salman who killed the two blackbucks on that fateful night. Salman's body language inside police station along with other constables clearly speaks volumes about the actor.

Luckily for them, the Sixers finally caught up on offense.

James certainly noticed the enthusiasm. "It's always been kind of rowdy coming here".

James tallied 44 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds and sparked a second half rally but it wasn't enough as the Sixers held on to win by the slimmest of margins. G Jose Calderon (left hamstring) did not play.

Brown said he kept in touch with Embiid through FaceTime and remained optimistic the big man would be a factor in the playoffs. "I think they believe in themselves, and I think that's the most important thing". However, after the Cavs fell to fourth thanks to the streaking 76ers, winners of 13 in a row, another second-round matchup with Cleveland is all of a sudden a distinct possibility for Toronto. "For us to come all the way back it shows what we are capable of doing". They have three games left (Dallas, at Atlanta, Milwaukee) while the Cavs face the Knicks in NY on Monday and then at home for their season finale two days later.
