BIG GAME: Hornets guard Jeremy Lin gets past Cory Joseph on his way to a season high in points.

CLEVELAND — LeBron James crashed into the crowd while scrambling for a loose ball and injured Ellie Harvey, who was sitting next her husband, PGA Tour player Jason Day, during the Cavaliers' 104-100 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night, ending Oklahoma City's six-game winning streak.

Harvey, a native of nearby Lucas, Ohio, has attended several Cleveland games the past two seasons with her husband. She was conscious and talking before being taken to the hospital. She was taken from the arena on a backboard.

James scored 33 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.

The Cavaliers were missing guards Mo Williams (thumb), Iman Shumpert (groin) and Kyrie Irving, who could make his season debut Sunday against Philadelphia.

LIN LEADS HORNETS: Jeremy Lin scored a season-high 35, Kemba Walker had 27 and the host Hornets defeated the Raptors 109-99 in overtime. P.J. Hairston added 14 points, including a 3-pointer with 90 seconds remaining in overtime that put the Hornets ahead to stay. DeMar DeRozan scored 31, Kyle Lowry added 20 and Terrence Ross had 17 for Toronto. Former Hornets center Bismack Biyombo set career highs with 18 rebounds and seven blocks, but Walker twice beat him off the dribble for layups to help preserve the victory.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert helped his fiancee, Teyana Taylor, deliver their baby girl in a bathroom at home Wednesday. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. was born three weeks early. Taylor said she did not realize she was in labor until she could feel the baby's head. Shumpert tied off the umbilical cord with headphones until an ambulance arrived minutes later. … Veteran NBA coach Mike D'Antoni, 64, joined the 76ers as associate head coach, according to reports.
