Russell Westbrook extended his streak of triple-doubles to six on Monday night, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 102-99 road win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Westbrook finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists in leading the Thunder to their sixth straight win. His streak is the NBA’s longest since 1989, when Michael Jordan notched a triple-double in seven straight games.

Cavaliers 116, Raptors 112 — LeBron James scored 34 points and Cleveland overcame an injury to J.R. Smith to snap a three-game losing streak with a win in Toronto.

Smith injured his left knee in the first quarter and hobbled to the dressing room in pain. The Cavaliers said that X-rays taken at the arena were negative, and that the guard would return to Cleveland on Tuesday for further examination.


DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 31 points, and Kyle Lowry added 24 in the loss, which ended their six-game winning streak.

The win was the Cavaliers’ third straight this season against the Raptors, the team they beat in last season’s Eastern Conference finals. It also prevented Toronto from leapfrogging Cleveland into first place in the conference.

Nuggets 106, 76ers 98 — Danilo Gallinari scored 24 points and Will Barton added 22, including a big 3-pointer late, to lead Denver to a win in Philadelphia.

Jamal Murray added 22 points for the Nuggets, who won for just the second time in the last seven games. It was their second contest of a six-game road trip.

Ersan Ilyasova, Sergio Rodriguez, and Dario Saric all had 17 points for the 76ers.

The game featured Murray and Joel Embiid, the NBA’s Western and Eastern Conference rookies of the month for October-November. Embiid finished with 16 points.

Wizards 118, Nets 113 John Wall scored 25 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, to lift Washington to a win in Brooklyn.


Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. had 18 points apiece for the Wizards.

Brook Lopez scored 25 and Sean Kilpatrick had 21 for the Nets.

Beal’s 3-pointer gave the Wizards a 107-106 lead with 3:27 left, then Wall scored five consecutive points to up the advantage to 112-106.

Trail Blazers 112, Bulls 110 — Damian Lillard had 30 points and CJ McCollum added 24 to help Portland to a win in Chicago.

Allen Crabbe added 17 points for the Trail Blazers, who opened a five-game trip with their third straight win and their fourth in five games.

Grizzlies 110, Pelicans 108 — Marc Gasol had 28 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer with seven seconds left in regulation, to go with 11 rebounds and 11 assists, leading Memphis over New Orleans in double overtime.

Spurs 97, Bucks 96 — LaMarcus Aldridge was credited for the go-ahead basket with 21.2 seconds left after Giannis Antetokounmpo was whistled for goaltending, completing San Antonio’s rally from 15 points down in a win in Milwaukee.

Hornets 109, Mavericks 101 — Kemba Walker scored 19 points and Nicolas Batum added 14 points as Charlotte rallied on the road to beat Dallas.
