Chet Holmgren had a career night and a game-tying buzzer-beater vs. the Golden State Warriors as the Oklahoma City Thunder snatched a 130-123 overtime win at the Chase Center last night.
The rookie scored a career-high 36 points and hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to extra time.
Here’s what NBA Twitter had to say about Holmgren’s performance:
CHET HOLMGREN IS THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
