Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led OKC with 24 points and Chris Paul had 20 points and 6 assists.

Danilo Gallinari had 16 points and made 3 three-pointers, while Steven Adams returned to the lineup with a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Darius Bazley came off the bench to score 10 points and grab 6 rebounds and made a pair of three-pointers.

OKC made 12 three-pointers as a team, and overcame a 53-38 deficit in rebounding.

The Thunder improved to 3-4 on the season and end their three-game homestand.

Before the game, the Thunder honored the 168 people killed in the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, with family members holding up the Thunder's City Edition uniforms with their respective family member's name on the back.

The Thunder will first wear their City Edition uniforms on January 9 at home against Houston.

OKC is at San Antonio next on Thursday night at 7:30 at the AT&T Center.
