Reggie Jackson answered the call.

Jackson scored 25 points with 12 rebounds and three assists. It was his first career double-double. He contributed 21 points, six rebounds and one assist in the second half and overtimes.

“Reggie was outstanding,” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. “I have confidence in Reggie. I thought he did a better job later in the second half of guarding his guy. And he can, he just has to engage and focus on doing that every time.”

At the end of the first overtime, Jackson also went 4-for-4 from the foul line inside the final 20 seconds. Each trip put the Thunder ahead by three. Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, however, sent the game into a second overtime with a 27-foot 3-pointer with 7.4 seconds remaining.

QUOTABLE

Toronto point guard Greivis Vasquez on Durant — “If you got Kevin Durant on your team, you’re safe. He’s like Jesus in this league.”
