16 Days Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez took a team-high 18 shots and made seven of them for 17 points during Game 6's win over Chicago to go with three boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes.
He wasn't as aggressive as usual and five of his 18 shots came from beyond 16 feet. Although, Lopez isn't a terrible jump shooter, making 37 percent of his attempts from beyond 16 feet this season. Joe Johnson was solid despite playing on one bad heel with 17 points in 38 minutes. Andray Blatche was also clutch and knocked down three free throws in the last 32 seconds of the game, finishing with 10 points and seven boards in 19 minutes. Game 7 on Saturday at Barclay's Center will postpone a Rihanna concert to Tuesday night. Plan accordingly.

Brook Lopez continued his stellar postseason in Monday's Game 5 110-91 win over the Bulls with 28 points, 10 boards, two assists and two turnovers on 11-of-20 shooting.
It was his second double-double in a row and he's been over 20 points in all five games this series. Lopez has been shooting the ball well against Chicago, making 51.8 percent from the field and 89.1 percent from the line. He catches a lot of criticism for his lack of rebounding, but he's been one of the best big men during the playoffs.
21 Days Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez double-doubled in Saturday's triple-overtime 142-134 Game 4 loss to the Bulls with 26 points and 11 boards in 51 minutes.
He added four blocks, two steals and the first 3-pointer of his career. The Nets missed out on a lot of 50-50 balls and they proved costly with a meltdown in the fourth quarter. Lopez has been as consistent as anyone this postseason and he'll need to play even better as the Nets have their backs up against the wall.
23 Days Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez blocked seven shots with 22 points, nine boards and one assist in 35 minutes during a loss to the Bulls on Thursday.
He continues to play well and has been the the lone bright spot for a team that has struggled mightily in the last two games. The Nets had just 16 points in the paint in the first three quarters, but made the game close with a whopping 22 points in the paint during the fourth quarter. Brook is going to need some help on Saturday in Game 4.
26 Days Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez was the only Nets player to show up in Monday's 90-82 Game 2 loss to the Bulls, as he scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and three blocks.
Joe Johnson (6-of-18 FGs, 17 points, four boards, four assists), Deron Williams (1-of-9 FGs, eight points, four boards, 10 assists, one steal, one block) and Gerald Wallace (1-of-7 FGs, two points, three boards, two steals) were impotent on offense, and all of a sudden momentum swings heavily back to the Bulls side for Game 3 in Chicago on Thursday.
28 Days Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez was his usual productive self against the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 21 points with five boards, two assists and three blocks in 32 minutes.
It was more or less on par with his season averages of 19.4 points, 6.9 boards and 2.1 blocks. Lopez is one of the more polished big men in the NBA and even with his sub-par rebounding, he'd could be considered as the premiere center in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

Brook Lopez returned to action on Wednesday and had 20 points, nine rebounds and zero blocks in a win over the Pistons.
He's ready to roll for the playoffs and wrapped up a great season tonight, finishing with late second-round fantasy value. Expect more of the same next season, as long as he can stay healthy, as he showed great improvement in rebounding this year.
