NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mirza Teletovic scored a team-high 20 points and Joe Johnson and Mason Plumlee each added 17 and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 97-88 Sunday night.

Deron Williams had 16 points, five assists and four steals for the Nets, who have a two-game lead for the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race over the idle Washington Wizards.

Tobias Harris scored 18 points for the Magic, who have lost their past two games.

Trailing 59-55 with 6:59 remaining in the third quarter, Brooklyn went on a 15-0 run, highlighted by five points from Teletovic, to take a 70-59 lead with 3:23 left in the quarter before Ronnie Price then hit a 3-pointer to end the run.

Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd pulled most of his regulars after the end of the third leading 79-70.

But Kidd was then forced to bring most of them back after Orlando went on a 6-0 run to trim Brooklyn's lead to 87-81 with 5:27 remaining.

Kidd called a timeout soon after and the Nets responded with a 10-3 run to extend the lead to 97-84 with 1:07 left.

Orlando led throughout most of the first half, shooting 54 per cent from the floor, good enough for a 49-46 lead heading into the third quarter.

Notes: Brooklyn's Brook Lopez, who broke his foot earlier this season, greeted fans on Fan Appreciation Night. The Nets centre, who fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot during a game on Dec. 20 at Philadelphia, watched the game from the bench. Lopez also had a procedure on March 3 to repair a torn tendon and tighten the lateral ligaments in his left ankle.
