PHILADELPHIA — The young Philadelphia 76ers, winners of four out of five games, could possibly challenge the Eastern Conference’s best teams sooner rather than later.

But not right now. As long a LeBron James is still roaming free in the conference, the Sixers will have their share of more growing pains. James had 30 points and 13 assists against the up-and-coming Sixers as Cleveland won 113-91 on Monday night, winning its eight straight game.

“[The Sixers] are starting to turn the corner here,” said James. “They have some great wins this year. WE had to come in with the mindset that this isn’t the Sixers of three years ago, four years ago. They’re starting to turn the corner and you have to be locked in from the outset.”

James as locked in from the start, scoring the team’s first nine points as he scored 22 points in the first half. The Cavaliers arguably had their best game from their bench all season, as three reserves scored in double figures: New acquisition Dwyane Wade had 15 points while Jeff Green had 14 points and Channing Frye hit for 12 points.

Philadelphia was led by Joel Embiid’s 30 points and 11 rebounds. The inside game was the only thing working on offense for the Sixers, as they went 3-for-28 from three-point range.
