CHICAGO (AP) - Ben Gordon scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, John Salmons added 17 and the Chicago Bulls beat the New Jersey Nets 103-94 on Saturday for their eighth win in 11 games.

Gordon missed his first 10 shots and was just 3-for-14 overall, but hit a key 3-pointer and two free throws during a game-ending 10-0 run.

The Bulls led by as many as 16 in the second quarter and never trailed until Brook Lopez hit a short jump hook to make it 94-93 with 2:50 left in the game. But the Nets missed their final eight shots, suffering their sixth loss in seven games.

Lopez led the fading Nets (31-45) with 20 points and 10 rebounds, but it was a rough afternoon for Vince Carter. He was favoring his left leg and wound up with just four points on 2-for-10 shooting.
