PHOENIX (AP) – Russell Westbrook scored 39 points in his 12th career triple-double but missed what would have been the game-tying layup with 5.7 seconds left in overtime, and the Phoenix Suns beat Oklahoma City 117-113 on Thursday night to snap the Thunder’s seven-game winning streak.

In an intense matchup of point guards, Phoenix’s Eric Bledsoe just missed a triple-double with 28 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists.

Westbrook missed his first eight shots and finished 12 of 38, 1 of 10 from 3-point range, but scored 31 in the second half and overtime of his fourth triple-double this season.

Markieff Morris scored 29 for the Suns, who pulled within 1 1/2 games of the Thunder for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
