Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points and the Bulls stopped another lengthy winning streak, rallying to beat New York, 118-111, in overtime Thursday night in Chicago and end the Knicks’ 13-game run.
Robinson came up big down the stretch, scoring 8 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, after ending the Miami Heat’s 27-game run — the second-longest in NBA history — on March 27.
They put the Knicks’ longest streak in nearly two decades to rest with a huge surge in the second half, offsetting Carmelo Anthony’s 36 points.
‘‘It’s over with,’’ coach Mike Woodson said. ‘‘You can’t win them all.’’
Robinson started overtime with a 3-point play to give Chicago a 108-105 lead, and after Anthony scored, the Bulls started to pull away.
Deng nailed a 3-pointer, and Robinson hit a free throw after J.R. Smith got called for a technical foul with 2:09 left for arguing a non-call against Deng on a missed drive. The Bulls guard then drove for a layup to make it 114-107, and Chicago hung on from there.
Chicago trailed by as much as 17 and was down, 79-64, in the third quarter before going on a big run to get back into it.
Thunder 116, Warriors 97 — Kevin Durant had 31 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists to help Oklahoma City roll in Oakland, Calif., and regain the Western Conference’s best record.
Kevin Martin scored 23 points off the bench for the Thunder (58-21), who moved a half-game ahead of idle San Antonio for the top seed. Serge Ibaka finished with 17 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 blocks.
Stephen Curry scored 22 points and reserve Jarrett Jack had 19 points on a night the playoff-bound Warriors lost center Andrew Bogut to another injury. The 7-footer left in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle. His status is unclear.
With the Thunder in full control, there was no need for coach Scott Brooks to press his starters. That prevented Durant from getting his second triple-double of the season as he was pulled with 8:14 remaining.
