Bulls end another win streak

as New York's 13-game run ends

Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points and the Chicago Bulls stopped another lengthy winning streak, rallying to beat New York 118-111 in overtime Thursday and end the Knicks' spree at 13 games.

Robinson came up big down the stretch, scoring eight points in the extra period. Jimmy Butler added 22 points, Luol Deng scored 16, and the Bulls busted a long streak for the second time in about a two-week span.

Thibodeau ruled out Rose for Thursday's game during the morning shootaround. Joakim Noah (right foot) and Taj Gibson (sprained left knee) did not play.

Thunder 116, Warriors 97 * Kevin Durant had 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists to help the Oklahoma City Thunder regain the Western Conference's best record with a victory over Golden State. The Thunder moved a half-game ahead of idle San Antonio for the top seed. The Spurs split the season series with Oklahoma City, but the Thunder (58-21) own the tiebreaker because of its better conference record.
