For the Thunder, three players scored 20+ points – Kevin Durant had 25, Russell Westbrook 27 and Serge Ibaka 23 but the bench amounted for 16 points compared with the Cavs’ bench which yielded 32 points.
In a rather funny incident, LeBron launched his 250-pound body into the air, crashing hard into the lap of a courtside spectator unable to get out of his way (Watch Video above). As fate would have it, the spectator was the wife of PGA champion Jason Day. Day’s wife was rushed to a nearby hospital.
“She squeezed my hand and said she was fine,” James said after the victory. “I think she was just a little weary. For me, obviously, her health is very important and hopefully she is doing well. The guys told me she’s doing great now. For me, just going for a loose ball, I tried to keep the possession going, I just hate that that was the end result.”
The Cavaliers (17-7) are placed comfortably atop the Eastern Conference. OKC Thunder (17-9) are placed third in the Western Conference, behind Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs.
