After a 132-130 win that went down to the wire and saw his Philadelphia 76ers surpass the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA's Eastern Conference standings Friday, Philadelphia's Ben Simmons used his Instagram account to show respect to the man widely regarded as the NBA's best player.
With a buzz in the city over the Sixers that hasn't been felt since the pre-Process days, they romped to a 30-point lead in the first half and scored 78 points at the break. However, James' greatness shined through and he was able to get enough help for the win. James shot 17-of-29 on the night.
"This was big, beating a team like that without an all-star", said Melbourne's Simmons, referring to the loss of Joel Embiid who is out with an injury. "We are playing well". James went for 35 of his points between the third and fourth periods, and, after drawing a foul in 3-point territory, toed the foul line with an opportunity to tie the game with 1.9 seconds to play.
The Cavs were without their top two point guards - George Hill and Jose Calderon - and starting forward Rodney Hood didn't play in the second half due to a sore Achilles tendon.
James sunk his first free throw, but was off the mark on his second.
Larry Nance then botched a tip-in right before the buzzer, as the Philadelphia won its biggest game in five years.

Jaylen Brown finished with a career-high 32 points.
