The 76ers focused on ball movement and high-intensity passing, which allowed them to exploit the giant holes the Cavaliers had in their defensive sets.
James suddenly remembered in the second half he needed to audition his stuff for his potential summer suitor. They also trail the Cavs by a half game in the season and a win would see the Sixers leapfrog Cleveland for the 3rd seed in the East. "Scary", Ben Simmons said after the game.
