Because he played last evening against the Hawks, LeBron James will not play against the Sixers. They're trying to keep him fresh for the regular season.

J.R. Smith led all Cavs scorers Wednesday night with 15 points on 6-10 shooting. Timofey Mozgov was also 6-7 for 13 points. They'll both be sitting as well.
