Dennis Schroder converted a layup on a full-court pass with no time remaining in regulation Friday night, lifting the Oklahoma City Thunder into a tie with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Then Shai Gigleous-Alexander took over the five-minute extra session, scoring 11 of his 29 points as the Thunder emerged with a 139-127 victory in Oklahoma City.

Chris Paul ($6,300) led the Thunder with 30 points, adding seven assists, four rebounds and two blocks for 50 DraftKings points, nearly 8x of his salary. Gigleous-Alexander, also priced at $6,300, finished with 39.25 DK points. Schroder ($5,700) played 39 minutes off the bench and scored 25 points, finishing with 35 DK points.

Jeff Teague was the fantasy star of the night. Priced at just $5,200, Teague scored a game-high 32 points and added nine assists, five rebounds and two steals for 56.25 DK points, nearly 11x of his salary. Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,400) had 30 points (5 three-pointers), eight assists, five rebounds, two blocks and two steals for 58.75 DK points.
