Five Thunder players scored in double figures, led by 25 points from Dennis Schroder, who made five three-pointers.

Danilo Gallinari had 23 points and made four three’s, his 11th straight game with at least three 3-pointers to break a Thunder record previously held by Paul George.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 21 points, while Mike Muscala had a season-high 17 points and made three 3-pointers.

Chris Paul had 16 points with 11 assists.

Steven Adams had to leave the game in the second quarter with a knee contusion and only played seven  minutes.

Toronto had seven players score in double figures, led by Norman Powell’s 23 points.

The Raptors made 15 three-pointers to earn a split in the season series between the teams.

OKC drops to 23-18 on the season and continues their three-game homestand Friday night when they host Miami at 7:00 pm at Chesapeake Arena.
