The game was tied at 103 before Paul made consecutive jumpers and the Nets never scored again.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander closed out the scoring with four free throws, after making a jumper to open OT. Gilgeous-Alexander added 22 points for the Thunder.
Taurean Prince scored 21 points and Caris LeVert had 20 in his second game back from right thumb surgery, but the Nets dropped their seventh straight.
