NEW YORK (AP) -- Brook Lopez had 23 points and 10 rebounds, Jarrett Jack scored 13 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Boston Celtics 111-101 on Sunday for a split of a home-and-home series.

Two nights after the Celtics won by 25 in Boston, the Nets dominated the second quarter that was pivotal in both games and held on after blowing most of a 22-point lead, their largest of the season.

Joe Johnson added 17 points for the Nets, who have won two in a row at home, where they have barely played this season.

Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley each scored 27 points for the Celtics.
