UNDATED (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls were able to end Russell Westbrook's string of triple-doubles at four straight games. More important, they pulled out a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Chicago beat the Thunder 108-105 on E'Twaun Moore's go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds left. The Bulls trailed by a point until Moore sent them to their second straight win. He finished with 19 points on 9 of 10 shooting in 22 minutes off the bench.
Nikola Mirotic finished with 26 points, while Pau Gasol (pow gah-SAHL') and Mike Dunleavy each had 21 for the Bulls.
Westbrook produced 43 points, seven assists and eight rebounds for the Thunder, but he also stepped out of bounds after receiving the inbounds pass following Moore's go-ahead bucket.
In the only other NBA game, Portland picked up its fifth straight win as LaMarcus Aldridge had 17 points and 12 rebounds in a 94-75 triumph over Dallas. Nicolas Batum added 15 points and a season-high 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who finished the game without starting guard Wesley Matthews because of a left foot injury.
NBA-LOWER AGE LIMIT
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- An attorney for the union representing NBA players has strongly indicated the association will again want the age limit for turning pro lowered in the next round of collective bargaining.
National Basketball Players Association general counsel Gary Kohlman expects the issue will be a contentious one with the NBA. Commissioner Adam Silver has often said he favors raising the limit from 19 to 20 in the next labor deal.

UNDATED (AP) -- Peyton Manning has passed his physical and signed his revised contract with the Denver Broncos.
The five-time MVP agreed to a $4 million pay cut to $15 million, but he can earn all of it back through incentives.
Manning mulled retirement after the Broncos' playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. But he determined he still had the health and hunger to keep playing at age 39.
-- Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer says he has restructured his contract to help with the team's salary cap status and improve the roster. Palmer says he's recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL and hopes to be ready for OTAs this summer.
-- The Carolina Panthers have signed Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen to a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2018 season. Olsen went to his first Pro Bowl in 2014 after catching 84 passes for 1.008 yards, both new franchise records for a tight end.
-- The NFL says Panthers defensive end and soon-to-be free agent Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new contract even if he remains on the commissioner's exempt list. He still faces a possible suspension from the league even though his conviction on two counts of domestic violence was dismissed Feb. 9 following a successful appeal.
-- The agent for Darnell Dockett says the defensive tackle has signed a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, keeping him in the NFC West after playing all of his 10 NFL seasons with Arizona. The 33-year-old Dockett sat out all of 2014 with a season-ending knee injury suffered during training camp.

-- Vince Wolfork says the Patriots have told him they won't pick up his option. The formidable defense tackle has spent his entire 11-year career with New England, helping to win two Super Bowls.
-- Two of the Oakland Raiders' big free agent acquisitions from last season are no longer with the team. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew retired and defensive end LaMarr Woodley was released by the team.
-- The Kansas City Chiefs released veteran linebacker Joe Mays as they attempt to free up much-needed salary cap space before the start of free agency next week. The Chiefs saved about $3 million by parting with Mays.
UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Islanders have regained sole possession of the Atlantic Division lead while extending Nashville's season-worst losing streak.

-- Philadelphia trailed 1-0 until Matt Read assisted on goals by Michael Del Zotto and Wayne Simmonds 1:50 apart midway through the third period of the Flyers' 3-1 win over St. Louis.

A Rangers spokesman said he would be reevaluated Friday.
DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Delaware prosecutors say they will not file criminal charges against NASCAR driver Kurt Busch following allegations of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend.
NASCAR indefinitely suspended Busch last month after a Delaware Family Court judge said the former champion almost surely choked and beat Patricia Driscoll last fall. But the Delaware attorney general's office says that there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges.
DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- J.B. Holmes tamed the Blue Monster course at Doral with a 10-under 62. That's good for a four-shot lead after the first round of the Cadillac Championship. Ryan Moore is alone in second.
