Add LeBron James to the list of Steven Adams dunk victims ... wait, what?

The Oklahoma City Thunder center threw one down on James in the third quarter of a game Thursday night in Cleveland. 

With Oklahoma City leading 64–56 and a little more than seven minutes remaining, Russell Westbrook threaded a pass in between Matthew Dellavedova and Kevin Love to a cutting Adams down the lane. Credit to James who tried to provide the weakside help, but Adams’s right-handed slam was just too much for The King.

James ultimately led the Cavaliers to a 104–100 comeback victory. He nearly posted a triple double with a game-high 33 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds.

The game wasn’t the story, though. James crashed into professional golfer Jason Day’s wife, Ellie, sitting courtside while trying to save a ball from going out of bounds in the third quarter. She was taken off in a stretcher and reportedly doing well after the game.

 

The Thunder’s six-game winning streak ended with the loss. Cleveland improved to 17–7 while Oklahoma City fell to 17–9.
