LeBron, Cavs end rough March with 122-105 win over 76ers

Frederick Owens | 09 April, 2017, 04:58

The playoffs are nearing.

"I tried to pick and choose and give him a break during timeouts", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of James. He totaled 41 points, hitting 16 of 29 field goals, 3 of 10 3-pointers, with 16 rebounds, 11 assists and one turnover in 51:39 minutes.

In the locker room, James added: "I was a little bit too demonstrative at that point in the game".

In a more positive aspect, numerous players from each team one-upped a previous great play as the clubs combined to score on seven straight possessions in the second OT, with Cleveland outscoring in 11-7 over a span of just 1:39. "We didn't play good for 30 minutes of the game".

A pair of ugly late possessions by both squads - including Tristan Thompson missing a pair of late free throws - ensured bonus basketball on Sunday.

George was magnificent in defeat, scoring 19 straight points in the overtimes and adding nine rebounds and nine assists.

It started when J.R. Smith (18 points, 6-for-11 3-pointers in 42 minutes) hit a three to put the Cavs up 123-120 with 2:06 left.

"Not going to get into it", he snapped. However, as was the case all night the Pacers responded with a counter-punch, tying the game up and sending the game to overtime.

This was undoubtedly the worst offensive game all season for Kyrie Irving. Thompson walked away and sat on the scorer's table by himself. There were six ties, and neither team led by more than four until the final 33 seconds. World B. Free, who played for the Cavs from 1982-86, was honored during a timeout in the first quarter. They were both mad and frustrated, but that's what you want to see.

Troy Daniels finished with 21 points for Memphis, shooting 7 of 12 from outside the arc.

The Cavaliers had to find a way to win to march into the postseason with momentum.

For the Pacers, Paul George was utterly remarkable, keeping his team in it time and time again, and occasionally, when all else seemed lost.

James, who was pulled 90 seconds into the fourth, was in a foul mood following Thursday's game.

But after James and George traded 3-pointers with less than one minute left, Kevin Love (20 points) buried a trey with 26.5 seconds to go for a 131-127 advantage.

By the Numbers - 787 ... consecutive games that LeBron James has scored in double-figures - dating back to an 8-point outing against Milwaukee back on January 5, 2007.

James Harden led Huston with 17 points. "I had the right intentions in my mind, but I had the wrong intentions come out of my mouth", James told Fox Sports Ohio as soon as the game ended on the court. "I can't show up my teammates". Especially Double T. He works hard for our team. IN has had a meh season marked by its star player grumbling about the team's identity. So I had good intentions on what I wanted to happen, but the way it came out probably didn't look good on TV...

"I apologized", he said. The Pacers went blow for blow with the defending champions in their place, but minor things like coaching rotations and questionable awareness caught up to them as the Cleveland Cavaliers caught fire to end the game.

The suddenly desperate Cavs won a double-overtime game agains the Pacers on Sunday, allowing them to maintain their tie with the Celtics for the No. 1 seed in the East.
