WARRIORS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James scored a season-high 42 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 110-99 on Thursday night for their 18th victory in 20 games.

James added 11 rebounds, outplaying fellow MVP candidate Stephen Curry and leading Cleveland past the team with the NBA's best record for its 11th straight home victory.

Curry scored 18 points, but had only six after the first quarter and was 5 of 17 from the field. David Lee led Golden State (44-11) with 19 points.

Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, who scored 24 points, left the game in the third quarter with an injury to his left shoulder, but returned early in the fourth.

Kevin Love added 16 points for the Cavaliers.

CAVALIERS-IRVING

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Kyrie Irving will have an MRI on his left shoulder Friday and the Cleveland Cavaliers say the All-Star guard is doubtful for their game at Indiana.

Irving did not travel with the Cavaliers to Indiana following their 110-99 victory over Golden State on Thursday. He scored 24 points, returning in the fourth quarter after getting hurt in the third.

The Cavaliers say Irving's status will be updated as appropriate.

CANADIENS-BLUE JACKETS

BLUE JACKETS-MAPLE LEAFS TRADE

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired right wing David Clarkson from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for right wing Nathan Horton.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced the deal Thursday night.

The 29-year-old Horton, a prized signing two years ago, has not played for the Blue Jackets all season because of a degenerative condition in his back. He has 203 goals and 218 assists in 627 NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers.

The 30-year-old Clarkson has 10 goals and five assists in 58 games this season. He has 112 goals and 84 assists in 544 NHL games with the Maple Leafs and New Jersey.

BLUE JACKETS-BLUES TRADE

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded right wing Adam Cracknell to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations.

The 29-year-old Cracknell had an assist and two penalty minutes in 17 games with the Blue Jackets, also playing 18 games in the American Hockey League. Claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 7 after a stint with the Blues, he was frequently a healthy scratch for the Blue Jackets.

Cracknell, a native of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, has appeared in 82 career NHL games with Columbus and St. Louis, totaling six goals and 11 assists.

NEBRASKA-OHIO ST

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jae'Sean Tate scored a career-high 22 points, Sam Thompson added 15 and Shannon Scott 13 to lead Ohio State past Nebraska 81-57 on Thursday night, the Cornhuskers' sixth loss in a row.

D'Angelo Russell had 11 points and six assists before leaving with leg cramps for the Buckeyes (20-8, 9-6 Big Ten), who had lost their last two.

Tarin Smith had 13 points, Terran Petteway 12 and David Rivers 10 for Nebraska (13-15, 5-11), which fell to 0-8 in conference road games. The Cornhuskers haven't won since beating Northwestern 76-60 on Feb. 3.

Tate, who also had seven rebounds, ended up 8 of 9 from the field, missing one of his two 3-point attempts. The freshman's previous career high was 20 against Rutgers.

Scott also had six assists.

MILWAUKEE-WRIGHT ST

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- J.J. Panoske drilled a 3-pointer with :04 left to lift Milwaukee to a 61-58 win over Wright State Thursday night.

Steve McWhorter hit a pair of free throws with 3:43 left to give Milwaukee a 58-51 lead, but Wright State rallied. Chrishawn Hopkins converted a pair of free throws and Michael Karena got to the basket for a layup to make it 58-55 with 2:29 left. Justin Mitchell tacked on a free throw and Hopkins hit the second of two free throws to make it 58-57 and Karena hit the second of two free throws with :22 left to tie the game.

Matt Tiby scored 24 points to lead the Panthers (13-16, 8-7 Horizon), but was the lone scorer to reach double figures.

Karena finished with 15 points to lead Wright State (11-18, 3-12), which now has lost 11 of its last 12 games.

CAVALIERS-LEBRON'S SON

UNDATED (AP) -- LeBron James says there are colleges recruiting his 10-year-old son, and the superstar isn't happy about it.

James told a Detroit radio station this week that his son, LeBron Jr., has already received scholarship offers. James did not specify which schools have contacted the youngster, but feels any such courtship "should be a violation. You shouldn't be recruiting 10-year-old kids."

James has been through the recruiting frenzy before. At Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, James was the most sought-after prep player in the country. He bypassed college and went straight to the pros as an 18-year-old.

James is highly protective of his three children, and the 30-year-old intends to let LeBron Jr. enjoy his childhood.

On Wednesday, before the Cavs hosted Golden State, James said his oldest son loves to play basketball, video games and doing his homework. James says: "Let him be a kid."
