The score at the start of overtime was 95-94 Oklahoma City.

You read that right.

Let me explain… No, there is too much. Let me sum up. With the score tied 94-94 and 1.9 seconds remaining, Chris Paul attempted a game-winning turnaround three that missed. Charlotte’s Terry Rozier grabbed the rebound and, apparently not realizing the score, celebrated the Hornets’ win by throwing the ball into the stands.

Except the game wasn’t over, it was headed to overtime. Throwing the ball into the stands during the game is a technical foul. Which was assessed to start overtime.

Paul hit the free throw, so the score at the start of overtime was 95-94 Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City held on to that lead and ended up winning in overtime, 104-102. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder with 27.
