LeBron James' excellence is so taken for granted, he rarely gets a mention here, but 44 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists is impossible to ignore.

Jackson scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime as the Pistons beat the Mavericks 113-106 Friday night. Ben Simmons was just two assists away from a triple-double, and even Markelle Fultz hit eight points and three assists and rebounds off the bench. Since returning to the lineup on March 19 (nine games), Love is shooting.451 (23-51) from three-point range.

Friday's game was one of the most anticipated Sixers regular season contests in several seasons.

In their Friday night matchup against one another, the two did not disappoint as they put on a marvelous one-on-one battle to highlight a classic and cardiac duel between two Eastern Conference beasts that are in the thick of playoff positioning. Philadelphia made it five-successive wins without dominant centre Joel Embiid, recovering from a concussion and surgery to fix a fractured orbital bone. "He played with pace, pushing tempo, got guys easy shots, and down the stretch he made tough shots in the paint and he really carried the team". New Orleans (45-34) won its second straight after losing four in a row.

The Philadelphia 76ers are beating teams into the ground during this 10-game winning streak, but they're still without their best player, and when these teams met a couple of weeks ago, the Nets only lost by four points.

Simmons and the Sixers might be playing as well as anybody in the National Basketball Association right now.

The Cavs have one less game than the Sixers, but they are both against the lowly New York Knicks.

It promises to be an exciting game and here's how you can follow the game live.

This time this matchup won't be in their favor, but Wade just wants the Heat to be playing well when they get to it. In that 22-point win, Cleveland held Philadelphia to just 3-28 (.107) shooting from beyond the arc, which was the lowest three-point percentage allowed by the Cavs in a single game since February 20, 2015 (.063, 1-16). Embiid tops in rebounds with 11.0 while Simmons tops in assists.
