LeBron James is poised to pass another milestone when the Cleveland Cavaliers visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. Jake Dotchin Jersey .James, who scored a season-high 30 points in a 128-122 victory over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night, needs two points to surpass Hakeem Olajuwons total of 26,946 and vault into 10th place on the NBAs all-time scoring list.Its always humbling when youre able to put yourself in any category with guys that laid the path for you and the rest of us, James told reporters after the Boston game.James led Cleveland to its first NBA championship last season and has the Cavaliers off to a 5-0 start, their best since they won their first eight games in 1976-77.He turns 32 on Dec. 30 and is in his 14th season but is playing as well as ever, averaging 22.4 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. He is not the Cavs leading scorer, however. Kyrie Irving is averaging 26 points, which if maintained would be a career high.Kevin Love is chipping in 22 points per game, his best clip in his three seasons with Cleveland, and is doing more damage in the paint than previously. According to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, 44.9 percent of Loves shot attempts came from 3-point range last season. This year that average is down to 33.3.Because Love is working inside, he is getting to the foul line more often. He has nailed 37 of 41 free throws to date, including 12 of 13 against Boston. He averaged 4.1 free throws attempts last season.Love scored a season-high 26 points against Boston, and Irving finished with 23. Six Cavaliers cracked double figures in all.This is the best Ive seen the Cavs play in November, Boston coach Brad Stevens told Cleveland.com. From what Ive seen ... theyre way ahead of where they were the last two years.The Sixers are 0-4, having lost 109-93 Wednesday in Charlotte while giving rookie center Joel Embiid a night off. Philadelphia lost its first 18 games last season and its first 17 the year before, and dropped 41 straight games in October/November, dating back to an overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Nov. 22, 2013.Embiid, who missed his first two seasons while recovering from a pair of foot surgeries, is averaging a team-best 17.3 points. The club is limiting him to 24 minutes a night as a precaution.Veteran forward Ersan Ilyasova, acquired Tuesday from Oklahoma City for Jerami Grant, scored 14 against the Hornets. Sergio Rodriguez is also averaging 12 points and 7.5 assists while filling in at point guard for Jerryd Bayless, who is out with a wrist injury.The only other Sixer scoring in double figures is rookie forward Dario Saric (11.3). Forward Robert Covington (12.9 the past two seasons) is down to four per game on 19.2-percent shooting.You just keep shooting, Covington told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Thats what you do. ... Do I get discouraged about it? No. I just continue to play, and when the time comes the shots are going to fall.Philadelphia is also without Nerlens Noel, who recently had knee surgery, and No. 1 overall draft pick Ben Simmons, who is out until at least January following foot surgery. Braydon Coburn Jersey . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. Cheap Stitched Lightning Jerseys . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. http:///...victor-hedman-jersey . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Stephen Myler landed an injury-time penalty to give Northampton a winning start to their Champions Cup campaign in a 16-14 victory over Montpellier at Franklins Gardens.Myler was on target in the final act of the game to ensure Saints domestic malaise, consisting of four defeats in six Aviva Premiership matches, was not carried into Europe.France number eight Louis Picamoles was outstanding once again and finished as man of the match, but it was Myler who landed the killer blow after Montpellier scrum-half Nic White had failed to put the ball into touch.Montpellier, who sit second in the French league, fielded a gigantic starting XV with a large South African contingent and their bench was every bit as imposing, but Saints camped in their 22 in the final 10 minutes and were eventually rewarded.The result will have eased the anxiety at Franklins Gardens caused by a poor start to the season which saw attack coach Alex King, who was linked with England less than 12 months ago, leave the club on Friday.Northampton, who withdrew Courtney Lawes from the team before kick-off, surged ahead after two minutes, luckily rescuing a stray line-out before Harry Mallinder spotted a chink in the visiting defence and raced into the hole.Once tackled he passed over the top to Picamoles on the left touchline and the back row powered through two defenders before slipping a superb offload to Calum Clark who slipped over.Mallinders influential start continued as he pick-pocketed lock Paul Willemse when Montpellier were on the brink of scoring and strong defence from Saints continued to keep them at bay.The lead eextended to 10 points when Myler landed a penalty to accompany his earlier conversion and it looked like being Northamptons night when full-back Benjamin Fall declined a two-man overlap to go it alone only to fall inches short. Chris Kunitz Jersey. But Montpellier were not so wasteful when the whitewash beckoned next, with Nemani Nadolo slipping a clever pass to Joffrey Michel and the replacement full-back timed his scoring pass to Frans Steyn perfectly.A burst of speed and agile footwork from Picamoles enabled Northampton to turn defence in to attack and after briefly threatening from a five-metre scrum they were able to secure three more points through Mylers boot.Picamoles off-loading was proving infectious as he produced another pass out of the tackle and then saw Sam Dickinson do the same as Saints launched a counter-attack.Steyn reduced the deficit to two points with a penalty to set-up a finely-poised final quarter, but the South African centre was subsequently guilty of missing the simplest of kicks.Mallinder missed touch and Montpellier were able to launch a counter that ended with Steyn finding his mark and edging his men in front, his two penalties going alongside one from Ben Botica.Northampton spent all of the last 10 minutes in the visiting half and when George North broke and chipped ahead, the line beckoned but Montpelliers defence scrambled in time.Mallinder fell short with a long-range penalty but with the final whistle about to blow, Myler hit the mark. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
