Per Elias, Russell Westbrook is the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double going perfect from the floor and the free throw line. He finished with 18-11-14 in 27 minutes for his 35th triple-double of the season.

There is some history of defending champs being bad on D following year, turning it on in playoffs ('01 Lakers most famous example).

Bulls win it 117-95. Niko Mirotic finishes 12/15 from the field. Butler finishes 6/6 from the field. Bulls outscored Pistons 58-44 in the paint. What an awful performance from the Pistons.

Westbrook spent most of the third quarter turning down open shots. The likely reason? He's 6-6 from the field. He checks out with 2:39 left in the third, probably done for the night with his 35th triple-double: 18-11-14 in 27 minutes.

Niko Mirotic is really playing well tonight. 9/12 from the field. He is stretching the floor for the rest of his teammates. Jimmy Butler has been very efficient from the field. 6/6 and has 9 assists.

Russell Westbrook with his 35th triple-double of the season, six away from Oscar with 11 games to go: 18-10-12 with 7:04 left in the third.

A pretty ho-hum first half for Russell Westbrook against the 76ers -- 16-6-7 as OKC leads 63-50. Enes Kanter with 19 and 6 rebounds.

Paul Millsap could void deal paying him $21.4M next season. Could get max 5-year, $207M with Hawks, or 4-year, $154M with other teams.

Hawks F Paul Millsap expected to void contract after season, become free agent, per sources. Loves ATL, would like to stay, but will look.

Jeff Hornacek will get a short break tonight from what's been a tough first season in New York. He and Knicks assistant Howard Eisley will be feted at halftime of the Knicks-Jazz game when Utah recognizes the 1996-97 NBA Finals team.

"We want Paul here," Larry Bird says. But the Pacers' road map to contention might speak louder to Paul George: es.pn/2nE8WiB
