LeBron passes Shaq for 7th on National Basketball Association scoring list

Boston Celtics Amir Johnson second from right grabs a rebound in front of New York Knicks Kristaps Porzingis right and Willy Hernangomez during the first half of the NBA basketball game Sunday

After being pushed around lately, the Cavaliers ended March showing some fight.

"We're just in a bad spot right now". The Bulls got knocked out all three times.

"We got back in transition", Butler said. "[We] gotta try to figure it out".

After declining a five year $44 million contract extension with the Pacers in 2014, Stephenson has been bouncing around the National Basketball Association spending time at the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans and most recently the Minnesota Timberwolves. "I hope we can build from here and finally take off next season".

Against the 76ers, they needed just two in a 122-105 win at Quicken Loans Arena.

Richaun Holmes and rookie Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored 19 apiece for Philadelphia, which dressed only nine players after shutting down Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington for the remainder of the season with knee injuries. They have been very inconsistent this month, especially on the defensive end and it is a cause for concern for "The King". Unfortunately for the Pacers, LeBron James had a 41-point triple double, helping Cleveland to 18 three pointers, outshooting Indiana's 16.

Sean Kilpatrick led the Nets with 15 points off the bench.

Immediately after the game, James expressed remorse.

Given the state of the Cavs, this one was significant.

Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki is sixth with 30,181 points. It's possible Covington will need surgery after an MRI revealed torn meniscus. They've dropped 10 straight games to teams in the top half of the bracket and are 2-11 overall. Because there's another glaring red flag right now for Cleveland, and that's what happens when James isn't on the court. World B. Free, who played for the Cavs from 1982-86, was honored during a timeout in the first quarter.

Rajon Rondo added 15 assists and Robin Lopez had 10 points and 11 rebounds as the ninth-place Bulls moved within a game of Miami and IN in the Eastern Conference standings.

Up Next - After tipping off the month of April with a dramatic victory, the Wine and Gold have just a half-dozen games remaining in the 2016-17 regular season.

James continued: "I'm never one to shortcut the process". "No reason. Push forward". "I thought we got the ball up quicker when he was in". Either way, they'll have to do better than this if they're going to be crowned again. They were both mad and frustrated, but that's what you want to see. Any team, especially a defending champion, that loses five of seven with the playoffs approaching is not in the greatest of spots.And of course, there was more."I think the effort was there".
