CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James crashed into the crowd and injured a fan while scrambling for a loose ball Thursday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers held off Oklahoma City 104-100, ending the Thunder’s six-game winning streak.
James plowed into Ellie Day, wife of PGA Tour golf star Jason Day in the fourth quarter. She was taken from the arena on a backboard.
James scored 33 points and added 11 assists and nine rebounds. Tristan Thompson had 15 rebounds for the Cavs, who improved to 11-1 at home.
Russell Westbrook scored 27 and Kevin Durant 25 for the Thunder, who were down 98-89 with three minutes left. Oklahoma City closed within 103-100, but both Durant and Westbrook missed 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds.
Ellie Day, wife of PGA Tour golf player Jason Day, is carried off the floor in a stretcher after Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James collided with her out of bounds in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder
