With 14.9 seconds left in regulation, Lillard hit a three to tie up the game and force OT. 

Despite being without Glenn Robinson III (ankle) and Draymond Green (illness), the young Warriors fought hard until the end. Alec Burks led the team with 33 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists before fouling out in OT.

D'Angelo Russell got off to a slow start with only 2 points in the first quarter but he got in a groove and he finished with 27 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists.
