TORONTO — Russell Westbrook had 37 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds Sunday for his fifth straight triple-double, Steven Adams scored 25 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Raptors 132-125 to snap Toronto’s winning streak at 11.

Paul George scored 22 points and Carmelo Anthony had 15 as the Thunder extended their own winning streak to six. Corey Brewer added 10 points.

DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry fouled out with 22 points and 10 assists as the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors suffered just their sixth home loss of the season. Toronto is 29-6 at Air Canada Centre, the best home record in the NBA.

DeRozan, Serge Ibaka and Raptors Coach Dwane Casey were ejected in the final minute for complaining to the officials. DeRozan was incensed after not getting a call on his drive with 30 seconds left and picked up two technicals in the following 22 seconds.

Officials are going to miss calls, but at the juncture of the game when some of the calls were made, we’ve got to get it right around the league,” Casey said. “Not just this game, the league.”

ROCKETS 129, TIMBERWOLVES 120: James Harden had 34 points and 12 assists, and Houston held off a fourth-quarter rally at Minneapolis for its 26th win in 28 games.

The West’s top team led by as many as 25 before the Timberwolves, holding on in a tightening playoff race, pulled within five in the fourth. The loss dropped the Wolves into the eighth playoff spot after starting the day in a three-way tie for fifth.


PELICANS: Coach Alvin Gentry was fined $15,000 by the NBA for publicly criticizing the league’s officiating.
