LeBron to miss Cavaliers' season finale

DeAndre Liggins has been waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers

After blowing a big lead on Sunday to the Hawks, can the Cleveland Cavaliers bounce back tonight when they travel to face the Miami Heat at 7:30PM ET?

Cleveland had to play the final 1:52 without James, coughing up a three-point advantage and the game.

Point guard Deron Williams, starting in place of Irving, scored 35 points to lead Cleveland. Kevin Love had 25 points and 10 rebounds before he fouled out with 29.2 seconds left in overtime.

Currently, the Cavaliers are one game behind the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Heat stayed alive with the win but needed help from Orlando (lost to Chicago) and Philadelphia (lost to Indiana) they did not receive. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot paced the Sixers with 24 points and Richaun Holmes had 17 points.

James and Kyrie Irving did most of the heavy lifting as James had 32 points, 10 assists and 16 rebounds, while Irving had 45 points and nine assists.

"Varejao hasn't played in a game since February 2 after the Golden State Warriors waived him in - and Cleveland would apparently prefer someone who's been playing in games", he continued.

The Cavaliers have the Eastern Conference No. 3 Toronto Raptors for their final regular season assignment.

George Hill scored 20 points for Utah, while Stephen Curry made 28 including six three-pointers in a losing cause for the Warriors. Yesterday's game was even more perplexing after they squandered a 26-point fourth quarter in Atlanta.

PACERS 120 bt 76ERS 111 - Paul George scored 17 of his 27 points in the opening quarter as in inched closer to clinching a berth in the National Basketball Association playoffs. Keeping the pressure on the Heat, the Cavs were able to boost the lead into double-digits for much of the third quarter and took a 91-80 lead into the final period.

The win kept the Jazz tied for fourth seed in the West with the Clippers, who routed the Houston Rockets, 125-96. The Heat would need Chicago and IN to split their final two games and Milwaukee to lose both of their remaining games to earn the #6 seed.

And yet, the game turned out to be nothing like expected. "But I think we're just ready for Wednesday to come and go and get ready for the weekend". "Can they give us the game back?"

Jones was released in October and hasn't played this season.

On Monday, the Wizards had the Pistons on the defensive early, taking a 15-point lead in the first half.

Detroit battled back to tie the game at 81-81 with 8:33 to play. With the Cavs up four points with 18 seconds remaining in the fourth, LeBron could not find an open teammate on an inbound and was called for a five-second violation, though it appeared he called for a timeout before the ref blew his whistle.
