Lopez recorded 23 points (10-20 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during the Nets' 111-101 win versus the Celtics on Sunday. Lopez now has seven double-doubles on the season, and his status as the team's first option offensively is unquestioned. He has never been an outstanding rebounder or shot blocker for his size, but he still puts up serviceable stats in both categories to go along with a consistent scoring output.
Lopez scored a game-high 24 points (11-21 FG, 2-4 FT) and added 10 rebounds with three blocks over 35 minutes in Tuesday's 90-88 victory against the Hawks. Lopez was able to get the best of Al Horford and Paul Millsap down low en route to another solid performance. It was his sixth double-double of the season, as the seven-footer was able to get back on track after poor shooting performances in his previous three games.
Lopez pitched in 18 points (8-21 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, an assist, three blocks, and a steal over 42 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Warriors. Like most of his Nets teammates, Lopez played a season high in minutes in the one-win team's valiant attempt at handing the defending champs their first loss o the season. The veteran center turned in a typical solid performance, coming within a rebound of a third consecutive double-double and posting multiple blocks for the fifth consecutive game. Lopez received some considerable scoring help Saturday from frontcourt mate Thaddeus Young's season-high 26 points, but he continues to be counted on a primary source of offensive production in addition to his rim-guarding duties.
Lopez tallied 17 points (5-15 FG, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds, four blocks, and an assist over 36 minutes in Friday's 111-109 loss to the Kings. Lopez continues to fight through some foot soreness to serve as the most consistent game-to-game offensive performer for a struggling Brooklyn offense that has show some signs of life over the last two contests. The double-double Friday was his second straight, and Lopez has now hauled in an impressive 22 boards over that span. The 27-year-old will continue to be counted on as a primary source of offensive production by Brooklyn on the majority of nights.
Lopez (foot) said he will play Wednesday against the Rockets, Rod Boone of Newsday reports. As expected, it does not appear Lopez will miss any time while dealing with a foot issue. While he may still be battling some residual soreness, Lopez is not expected to be limited as the Nets seek their first victory of the season.
