Westbrook triple-double streak ends

NBA scoring leader Russell Westbrook netted a game-high 28 points but missed out on a fifth consecutive triple-double Saturday in Oklahoma City’s 110-94 home victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Westbrook, averaging a league-high 31.7 points a game, also passed off 10 assists but managed only eight rebounds before being removed with 58 seconds remaining and the outcome not in doubt.

“We know we have the talent to score the ball inside or outside,” Thunder center Enes Kanter said. “We just need to focus on the defensive end, play with an edge.” 

The Thunder’s fifth consecutive victory improved the team’s record to 40-29 to match the Los Angeles Clippers for fifth in the Western Conference.

With 13 games remaining in the regular season Westbrook has so far this season managed 34 triple-doubles — double-digit performances in three statistical categories in one game.

That leaves Westbrook seven triple-doubles shy of Oscar Robertson’s record of 41 in a single season from the 1961-62 campaign.

That season was also the one in which Robertson became the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire season.

Robertson scored 30.8 points, pulling down 12.5 rebounds and passing off 11.4 assists a game for the Cincinnati Royals, who moved to Kansas City in 1972 and again to Sacramento in 1985.

Westbrook could become the second NBA player to average a full season triple-double. In addition to his top point total, the 28-year-old American guard is averaging 10.5 rebounds and 10.4 assists a game.

Damian Lillard carried his team on his back Sunday, scoring a season-high 49 points as the Portland Trail Blazers stopped the Miami Heat 115-104 at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The 26-year-old point guard from Oakland, California made 12 free throws and nine three-pointers, the same number the entire Heat team did. His 49 points was just four fewer than the Miami  starting lineup.

“That was one incredible performance,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “There may be less than five players in this league that you have to do something different on your pick-and-roll coverage. Lillard is one of those guys.

“Once he got going, there haven’t been many shooting performances like that in the league this year. He was outstanding.”

Despite playing on back-to-back nights, Lillard showed no signs of fatigue, making 14 of 21 shots from the floor.

It was Lillard’s 13th game this season with 30 or more points and his fourth with 40 or more. He started the night seventh in NBA scoring with an average of 26.5 points.

Lillard got help from Jusuf Nurkic, who had 21 points and 12 rebounds as Portland improved to 32-37 on the season.

CJ McCollum added 18 points as the Trail Blazers won their third game in a row and are now one game behind the Denver Nuggets for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Western Conference.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said he hopes his players remain focused during their final 13 games, 10 of which are at home.

“Being at home doesn’t guarantee anything,” Stotts said. “Certainly, it’s an advantage, but we can’t let down our guard.”

In Los Angeles, Kyrie Irving scored 46 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers rolled over the Los Angeles Lakers 125-120 at Staples Center.

Irving connected on 15 of 21 shots from the floor for the Cavaliers, who increased their lead over the Boston Celtics for first place in the Eastern Conference to 2 1/2 games.

LeBron James tallied 34 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and Kevin Love added 21 points and 15 boards for Cleveland, who improved to 46-23.

Elsewhere, JJ Barea tallied 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter as the Dallas Mavericks went wire-to-wire to beat the Brooklyn Nets 111-104.

Germany’s Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 23 points, including 20  in the first three quarters when the Mavericks took an 82-72 lead. He also became the sixth NBA player to score at least 31,000 career points.

Saric soars as Sixers rally to dump Celtics

Croatian forward Dario Saric scored 23 points and Robert Covington sank a go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:41 to play Sunday, sparking the Philadelphia 76ers over visiting Boston 105-99.

Covington, who finished with 16 points, and Saric combined for nine points in the NBA contest’s final 5:27 as the 76ers rallied from what had been a 13-point deficit in the third quarter to win for the third time in four games.

Al Horford scored a season-high 27 points and contributed eight rebounds and six assists to lead the Celtics, who fell to 44-26, two games behind Eastern Conference leader Cleveland.

The Celtics, whose three-game win streak ended, were without All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, who rested a sore right knee. He is expected to return Monday against Washington, third in the East at 42-27.

With the score knotted at 91-91, Covington sank his crucial 3-pointer and 76ers guard T.J McConnell sank a jumper that triggered a 9-2 Philadelphia flurry to seal the win.

The Memphis Grizzlies’ title hopes took a blow Sunday as they announced forward Chandler Parsons will undergo left knee surgery on Monday and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Parsons, 28, will undergo a procedure to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus.

He had signed a four-year contract worth $94 million with the Grizzlies in the offseason but has averaged only 6.2 points in 34 games this season, nagged all season by knee injuries. Parsons has undergone two surgeries on his right knee in two years.

MIAMI (AP) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver sent a memo to the league's board of governors Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), calling the way teams are choosing to rest starters in some games "an extremely significant issue for our league" and pressing owners to be more involved in the decision-making process.

Silver also told the owners that the matter will be discussed at league meetings next month after nationally televised games on back-to-back Saturday nights (Sunday, PHL time) were diluted by decisions to rest star players.

"Decisions of this kind ... can affect fans and business partners, impact our reputation and damage the perception of our game," Silver wrote in the memo, which was obtained by The Associated Press. "With so much at stake, it is simply not acceptable for governors to be uninvolved or to defer decision-making authority on these matters to others in their organizations."

ESPN.com first reported the contents of the memo.

The rest issue has been an even hotter-than-usual talking point in the NBA of late with teams like Golden State and Cleveland — the last two NBA champions — electing to rest superstars in recent nationally televised games. Fans have complained on some occasions that they have paid a premium price to see stars play, then arrived at arenas only to find that those players are getting the game off.

It also can't sit well with the networks that paid $24 billion to the NBA in the latest television contract negotiations.

"Please also be reminded that under current league rules teams are required to provide notice to the league office, their opponent and the media immediately upon a determination that a player will not participate in a game due to rest," Silver wrote. "Failure to abide by these rules will result in significant penalties."
