Philly led the majority of the game in Miami until Dwyane Wade channeled Flash circa 2010 completely taking over the fourth quarter to steal the victory away from Philadelphia.
Likewise, the Cavaliers were in a battle with the Brooklyn Nets who dared to steal the victory away from the Quicken Loans Arena crowd. LeBron James calmed his teams seeming stress to champion the victory.
Cleveland swept the Sixers last season, won the initial two meetings this season and hold a current 11 game win record versus the 76ers. In a rarity the teams hold an even all-time split 102-102 of games each won versus the other.
As the Sixers improved much of their success came via the improved defensive system the team was utilizing. In their last game versus the Heat there were segments of the game when the old issues of turnovers and lapses on defense reared its ugly head.
In the end, it cost the 76ers the game. Facing the Cavaliers these mistakes can’t be repeated.
The road (13-17) remains an issue for the 76ers and if the team desires to make a long playoff run they’ll need to resolve that problem.
Demetrius Jackson (adductor strain) has missed the last four games and is questionable to play. Justin Anderson (high-ankle sprain) remains out.
Furkan Korkmaz (foot) is expected to be out of action until the at the least the beginning of March. Rookie Markelle Fultz (shoulder) remains out with no certainty of a return date.
If there was still uncertainty over this revamped Cavaliers squad needing work the close win versus the Nets should have confirmed this analysis.
Certainly with time George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood and Larry Nance Jr. will become more familiar with the Cavaliers systems on both sides of the court.
That said Clarkson isn’t strong defensively, Nance is limited offensively, Hood disappears for entire games and Hill looks a step slower on both ends.
Jeff Green missed the game versus the Nets due to lower-back soreness and it is uncertain if he will play Thursday against the 76ers.

With such a small spread and being on the road the Cavaliers should be able to withstand the 76ers size and inexperience.
