Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets used a strong fourth quarter to pull away from the Bulls Friday.

The Brooklyn Nets (28-19) out-scored the Chicago Bulls (28-18) 30-22 in the fourth quarter to erase a deficit and come away with a 93-89 win Friday.

Brook Lopez led all scorers with 20 points on 9 for 16 shooting. The Nets jumped out to a 10-point lead after the first quarter, but the Bulls held Brooklyn to just 17 second-quarter points to take a one-point halftime lead, then extended that lead to four entering the fourth quarter.

The Nets took the lead thanks to a strong effort from MarShon Brooks, who scored nine points in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter. He gave the Nets the lead for good on a jumper with 7:37 remaining and scored 13 points off the bench for the game.

Marco Belinelli and Luol Deng scored 18 points and Taj Gibson had 16 points for Chicago. Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson each scored 12.

Joe Johnson scored 13 points for Brooklyn and Deron Williams and Andray Blatche each scored 11.

The loss snapped Chicago's two-game winning streak.
