Thunder hit buzzer-beater to force OT, then top Timberwolves

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Chris Paul scored a season-high 30 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled off an improbable 139-127 overtime victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.

With Minnesota ahead 121-119 and a second remaining in regulation, Oklahoma City fouled Karl-Anthony Towns. He missed a free throw, then Minnesota was issued a technical foul for a delay of game because Jordan Bell did not have his jersey tucked in when he subbed in.

Danilo Gallinari made the technical free throw for Oklahoma City, then Towns shot his second free throw at the other end. He made it, putting Minnesota up two but giving Oklahoma City a chance at a throw-in. Steven Adams completed a nearly length-of-the-court pass to Dennis Schroder, who made a layup as time expired to force overtime.
