Brook Lopez was untouchable on Friday night, exploding for 34 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, three blocks, three turnovers and six 3-pointers in the Lakers’ 124-112 thwarting of the Nets.
Lopez spent the first nine years of his career with the Nets and most of that time was spent on losing squads so there may have been some pent up aggression there. Either way it was a fantastic performance and the best of Lopez’s short Laker career. As a Lopez owner, the 34 points is awesome but it’s the 10 rebounds you need to revel in. By big men standards Lopez will only rarely grab double-digit boards so anytime it happens deserves a celebration.
