Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 40 points, six rebounds and six assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder sent the Golden State Warriors to their sixth straight loss with a 130-123 overtime victory on Saturday night.

Golden State’s Andrew Wiggins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, then Oklahoma City rookie Chet Holmgren responded with a game-tying shot from deep to beat the buzzer and send the game to overtime. The Thunder outscored the Warriors 13-6 in the extra period to seal back-to-back wins at Chase Center and secure the season series, 2-1.

Holmgren scored a season-high 36 points and added 10 rebounds and five assists, and Jaylin Williams had 22 points and six rebounds

Isaiah Joe’s streak of consecutive made 3-pointers that began with his 7-for-7 showing on Thursday ended at eight in a row with a buzzer-beater to close out the first quarter. He finished the night with 10 points off the bench.

Wiggins scored a season-high 31 points and was 12 of 19 with five 3s, and Stephen Curry had 25 points in his return from a right knee strain as the Warriors fell to 1-6 on their home floor. It was the first time this season that Curry has appeared in a game and not led Golden State in scoring.

Even with Curry’s return, the Warriors were again short-handed, missing Draymond Green (five-game suspension) and Gary Payton II (left foot strain). Payton is not expected to miss significant time after an MRI revealed no structural damage, and Green isn’t eligible to return until Nov. 28 at Sacramento.
