Bulls halt second long win streak

CHICAGO — Nate Robinson scored eight of his 35 points in overtime as the Bulls beat the Knicks 118-111 to end their win streak at 13 on Thursday.

Chicago halted a long win streak for the second time in a month. It ended the Heat's 27-game run, the second longest in NBA history, on March 27.

Robinson started overtime with a three-point play. And after Carmelo Anthony, whose two free throws for the Knicks with 14.5 seconds left forced overtime, scored, the Bulls pulled away.

Deng made a 3-pointer, and Robinson hit a free throw after J.R. Smith got called for a technical. Robinson then drove for a layup to make it 114-107.

Anthony, trying to become the first Knick to win a scoring title since 1984-85, scored 36 on 13-of-34 shooting.

Mavs out, Lakers in control: The Mavericks were eliminated from playoff contention late Wednesday when they lost at home to the Suns and the Lakers won at the Blazers. Dallas will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2000. "There have been times where really good shot-making nights have been a deodorant for other flaws," coach Rick Carlisle said after the 102-91 defeat. Los Angeles won 113-106 behind Kobe Bryant's season-high 47 points. Los Angeles, with three games left, leads Utah by one game for the West's final spot. The Jazz holds the tiebreaker after winning the season series 2-1.
