NEW YORK, N.Y. - Alan Anderson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half, helping the Brooklyn Nets pull away from the short-handed San Antonio Spurs for a 103-89 victory Thursday night.

Despite playing without Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard, their top four scorers, the Spurs were still within five points early in the fourth quarter before the Nets pulled away for good.

Deron Williams added 16 points and eight assists as Brooklyn ended a six-game losing streak to San Antonio with its first victory since March 29, 2010.

So banged-up that at one point that they had two players on the court wearing facial masks to protect broken noses, the Spurs fell to 2-1 on their nine-game rodeo trip.

The Spurs overcame all their challenges to pull out a 125-118 double-overtime victory at Washington on Wednesday, but didn't have enough to beat an improving Brooklyn team.

Cory Joseph scored 18 for the Spurs, Danny Green had 17 and Patty Mills 16.

WARRIORS 102, BULLS 87

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 34 points and nine assists, Klay Thompson scored 22 points and the undermanned Warriors rallied from 16 down in the first half to beat the Bulls.

With big men Andrew Bogut and David Lee sidelined with injuries, Golden State's streaky backcourt tandem found its shooting stroke after falling behind 34-18 in the second quarter. Curry finished 13-for-19 shooting, and Thompson shot 8 of 16 from the floor to give the Warriors' raucous fans a reason to cheer after losing five of their previous seven at home.

Taj Gibson had 26 points and 13 rebounds filling in for Carlos Boozer, and Kirk Hinrich scored 15 points for Chicago.
