OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a career-high 33 points and 10 assists to help Oklahoma City beat the Chicago Bulls and former Thunder coach Billy Donovan 127-125 in overtime Friday night. Oklahoma City rallied from 22 points down in the second half. Zach LaVine, who led the Bulls with 35 points, could have won it in overtime but he missed a deep, off-balance 3-pointer in the closing seconds. First-year Thunder coach Mark Daigneault, an assistant under Donovan last season, didn’t get caught up in the matchup with his mentor. Lu Dort scored 21 for the Thunder, who claimed their first home win in six tries this season. The Bulls led 68-50 at halftime, but Daigneault could tell the Thunder hadn’t given up. The Bulls led 78-56 early in the second half, but the Thunder responded with a 13-0 run to get back into the game. Dort scored 13 points in a span of 2:33 to help trim the deficit, and Oklahoma City got as close as two points in the period. Chicago took a 95-87 lead into the fourth quarter.
