BY JIM HAGUE NEW YORK -- Brook Lopez scored 20 points and MarShon Brooks provided a huge lift off the bench with 13, leading the Brooklyn Nets to a come-from-behind 93-89 victory over the undermanned Chicago Bulls Friday night at the Barclays Center. The win was just the second in their last five games for the Nets (28-17), while the Bulls (28-19) fell for only the second time in their last seven games and the third time in their last 11. The Bulls, already without former league MVP Derrick Rose, were without Kirk Hinrich (elbow), Joakim Noah (foot) and Carlos Boozer (hamstring), yet still managed to hang with the Nets until the final seconds. Besides Lopez and Brooks, the Nets received 13 points from Joe Johnson and 11 each from Deron Williams and Andray Blatche. Blatche had nine of his 11 points in the fourth quarter. The Bulls were led by Luol Deng and Marco Belinelli, who had 18 points each, and Taj Gibson, who had 16 points. Nate Robinson had 12 points and 11 assists. J...
