E'Twaun Moore, not Russell Westbrook, was the hero Thursday as the Chicago Bulls rallied late to upend the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-105. Moore, who saw extended playing time because of Chicago's recent slew of injuries, scored 13 of his career-high 19 points in the fourth quarter, including the deciding 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds remaining. Fellow reserve Nikola Mirotic poured in 14 of his 26 points in the final frame, while Paul Gasol and Mike Dunleavy each chipped in with 21 points for the Bulls, who won for the third time in four games despite trailing by as many as 16. Westbrook came into the game riding a string of four consecutive triple-doubles, the longest stretch the NBA has seen since Michael Jordan had seven in a row from March 25-April 6, 1989. The All-Star guard recorded a franchise-record third straight 40-point performance with 43 points but shot just 2-of-9 in the fourth quarter and turned the ball over after Moore's go-ahead 3. He also fell shy of a triple-double by two rebounds and three assists.
