NEW YORK, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- C.J. Watson's two free throws with 11 seconds remaining Friday wrapped up a 93-89 win for Brooklyn over the ailing Chicago Bulls.

Brook Lopez led the way with 20 points and the Nets overcame a four-point deficit at the start of the fourth period.

Chicago came close to pulling off a road win despite having three members of its regular rotation out of action.

Joaquim Noah missed the game with a foot injury, Carlos Boozer was out with a sore hamstring and Kirk Hinrich returned to Chicago for tests on an infection in his right elbow.

Brooklyn got 13 points each from Joe Johnson and MarShon Brooks while hitting on 52 percent of its field goal tries. Chicago went 1-of-14 from 3-point range.

Luol Deng and Marco Belinelli both scored 18 points for the Bulls.
