CHICAGO, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Carlos Boozer scored five points during a late run Friday that pushed the Chicago Bulls to a 90-81 win over New Jersey.

The Bulls owned only a two-point advantage with 6:48 to go but then went on a 13-4 surge that included a slam dunk by Boozer. The Bulls won their third straight and their 12th in 14 games.

New Jersey has lost four in a row.

Boozer finished with 20 points and both Luol Deng and Derrick Rose had 19. Chicago shot just 39 percent from the field and was outrebounded by the Nets, but the Bulls committed only 11 turnovers and made 24-of-29 from the foul line.

Brook Lopez led New Jersey with 19 points.
