Zach LaVine scored 20 of his season-high 29 points in the fourth quarter as the Chicago Bulls rallied down the stretch for a 108-99 victory over the struggling Brooklyn Nets in New York.

The Nets, playing hours after parting ways with coach Steve Nash, lost for the sixth time in eight games this season. The Bulls snapped a two-game skid.

DeMar DeRozan added 20 points for the Bulls, who shot 52.4 percent in the fourth quarter and 43.8 percent overall. Ayo Dosunmu contributed 17 points, and Nikola Vucevic grabbed 15 rebounds.

Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant led all scorers with 32 points to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. Royce O’Neale added 20 points. Kyrie Irving was held to four points on 2-of-12 shooting and did not score until early in the fourth.

Stephen Curry produced his 10th career triple-double with 23 points, 13 assists and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who took their third straight loss. Miami was also led by reserve guard Max Strus, who scored a game-high 24 points as the Heat snapped a two-game losing streak.

The Warriors fell to 0-4 on the road in part because they couldn’t stop Butler in a couple of crucial situations. Butler made the go-ahead three-point play with 1:48 left for a 112-109 lead. Butler also made a mid-range jumper with 9.5 seconds left, giving Miami a 114-109 edge.
