CHICAGO — Kevin Durant had 21 points and eight assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Chicago Bulls 115-107 despite Zach LaVine’s 41 points.

Joe Harris added 17 points and Bruce Brown had 15 as Brooklyn won its second straight after a four-game slide.

Chicago had its three-game winning streak — and probably its postseason hopes — end. Chicago, in desperate need of a win, helped doom itself by staying under 40% from the floor until the final minutes.

Coby White finished with 16 points and Nikola Vucevic added 12 points and 12 rebounds.
