Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers player grades

LeBron shined on Monday, as did a slew of other Cavs.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Here are player grades for Monday’s Cavs-76ers game.

LeBron James: A

The 76ers had no answer for LeBron on either end of the floor, and LeBron orchestrated the flow of the Cavs’ win.

Kevin Love: B-

Love fought against Joel Embiid on defense as well as you could have hoped, and hit a few threes after a slow start. But he pulled down just three rebounds and was just 4-12 from the field. Had he hit open shots early in the game, this game may have been over faster.

Dwyane Wade: B+

Wade was only 5-12 from the field, but played solid defense and kept the second unit flowing when LeBron James sat. This type of performance is why the Cavs signed him.

J.R. Smith: A-

Smith played solid defense and was 3-5 from three. This was easily his best game in a week, if not longer.

Jae Crowder: C

Defensively, Crowder was solid and did a good job of staying Ben Simmons. Offensively, his feet weren’t square on his three-point attempts and he didn’t offer much beyond getting to the line twice.

Jose Calderon: B-

Calderon remains decent because he knows where to be and tries. He did a decent enough job chasing around J.J. Redick on Monday.

Channing Frye: A-

Frye physically can’t match Embiid, but he baited him into some contested shots and pulled Embiid away from the paint. Making two of his three-point attempts is nice too.

Kyle Korver: A

Korver tied for a team-leading +25 and made the 76ers pay for giving him even a little room to shoot. His threes, in particular, helped Cleveland bury Philadelphia.

Iman Shumpert: C

Shumpert saw just seven minutes of playing time in his return from injury, and it’s unclear why.

Jeff Green: A-

Green quietly had a 14 point, 10 rebound performance against the 76ers. He remains a key part of good Cavs bench units.
