  • LeBron James Dwyane Wade

Isaiah Thomas scored a game-high 29 points off the bench and Julius Randle added 25 points to power Los Angeles past host Miami.

Philadelphia and Cleveland are exhausted at 34 early in the second quarter.

James has been recently rumored to be considering the Sixers this offseason when he becomes a free-agent and on Thursday night, the young Sixers beat James and the Cavs in Cleveland, 108-97.

The Cleveland Cavaliers suspended guard JR Smith for Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers for detrimental conduct, the team announced.

The Sixers are 1-2 against the Cavs this season, with one more chance to even the score coming on April. 6 at the Wells Fargo Center, hopeful to even the series as they've rolled into winning eight of their last 10 games, cracking sixth place in a very competitive bottom of the playoff window.

But his 25 points weren't close to enough against a Lakers team untroubled by any defensive effort Miami, who gave up the most points they have allowed this season.

"We'll know more tomorrow", Walton said.

Things got testy in the waning seconds when Philadelphia forward Dario Saric dunked and Cleveland's Jordan Clarkson, frustrated, bounced the ball off Saric's back. "My brother lives in the Philadelphia area and he told me that LeBron, last week through a superintendent, was in the area checking out some private schools during the All-Star break". With extra practice time during a five-game home stand, the team with four new rotation pieces has taken the time to implement more offensive sets.

The Portland Trail Blazers, meanwhile, had to much firepower for the Minnesota Timberwolves, easing to a 108-99 victory. But trailing by six in the fourth quarter they reversed the trend to produce a 20-4 scoring run. Damian Lillard was the star performer with 35 points.
