NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 21 points, George Hill hit the go-ahead free throws with 12 seconds left, and the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 111-110.

The Pelicans had the final possession of the game and top scorers Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson both touched the ball.

But it was second-year reserve guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker who took the final shot from 3-point range and it rattled out.

Darius Bazley had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City.

Williamson scored 29 points and Ingram 24.
