Westbrook's streak ends

Russell Westbrook's triple-double streak ended at four, but that doesn't mean he had a bad game. Westbrook had 43 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Thunder last night, but E'Twaun Moore hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 2.1 seconds left to give the host Bulls a 108-105 victory.

Westbrook, who had 49 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists in an overtime victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday, scored at least 40 points for the third straight game. Westbrook, who fractured a bone in his right cheek Friday night and had surgery Saturday, was the first player to have four straight triple-doubles since Michael Jordan had seven in 1989.
