The Chicago Bulls stopped another lengthy winning streak Thursday as Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points in a 118-111 overtime win that ended the New York Knicks' 13-game run.

Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant had 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists to help the Thunder regain the Western Conference's best record with a 116-97 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Jimmy Butler added 22 points and Luol Deng scored 16 as the Bulls busted a long streak for the second time in about a two-week span, ending the Miami Heat's 27-game run _ the second-longest in NBA history _ on March 27.

Robinson scored eight points in the extra period after starting overtime with a three-point play to give Chicago a 108-105 lead.

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.

At Oakland, Kevin Martin scored 23 points off the bench and Russell Westbrook added 18 points and nine assists for the Thunder, who moved a half-game ahead of San Antonio for the top seed. The Spurs split the season series with Oklahoma City, but the Thunder (58-21) own the tiebreaker because of its better conference record.

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.
