Oklahoma City Thunder couldn’t replicate their dramatic win against the 76ers when they met with the Chicago Bulls on Thursday.
The Chicago bulls (39-23) were on a high though, as they overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, to emerge as winners with a slim three point lead against the Oklahoma City Thunder (34-28), winning 108-105 at the United Center.
Russell Westbrook’s triple-double streak ended even though he was in excellent form as he extended his 40-point game streak to three games. He dominated with 43 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
It was Chicago’s E’Twaun Moore and Nikola Mirotic who stole the show late. Mirotic had 26 points and eight boards in 34 minutes off the bench. Moore went 9-for-10 in the game and put up 13 points in the fourth quarter. With time winding down, Pau Gasol kicked it out to Moore, who canned the go-ahead three pointer; a deserving win for the bulls.
