DeMar DeRozan also added on 23 points on 10 of 19 from the field to go along with seven rebounds and three assists. For the Raptors, Pascal Siakam finished with 32 points while Fred VanVleet had 26 points in the loss.

Highlights:  The New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder squared off for an opportunity to extend their season in the Play-In Tournament on Wednesday night, and ultimately it was the Thunder who came out on top, 123-118. New Orleans led the game at halftime, but the Thunder came out and took over in the third quarter, outscoring the Pelicans 39-24.

Brandon Ingram paced the Pelicans with 30 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and Herb Jones also added 20 points, five rebounds and five assists, but ultimately their production wasn’t enough to propel the Pelicans to a win.
