Brook Lopez scored 29 points and Reggie Evans added 17 points and 24 rebounds as the Brooklyn Nets firmly held their ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race with a 104-83 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson had 11 points apiece for the Nets, who began the day with a two-game lead over Chicago for the No. 4 seed in the East and home-court advantage against their likely first round foe.

Reserve guard MarShon Brooks had 11 points and seven assists for the Nets, winners of two straight overall and three of four in the season series against the 76ers. The Nets play at Boston on Wednesday night and have four games remaining.

Nick Young had 18 points and Jrue Holiday scored 15 for the Philadelphia, which has lost two straight.
