Lopez delivered 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), eight rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes in Tuesday's Championship Game 6 105-98 win over the Suns. Lopez was part of a dominant front-court that out rebounded the Suns 53-37. The big center earned his championship ring with 11.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 0.7 blocks and 0.8 made threes per game over six NBA Finals contests. In Game 6, Lopez again alternated with super-sub Bobby Portis, who delivered 16 points off the bench. Lopez has two more years remaining on his contract with Milwaukee. Tuesday night's victory marked the first NBA Championship in the veteran's 13 year NBA career.
Lopez finished with 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 118-105 loss to Phoenix. Lopez had a nice offensive game but still failed to have a sizeable impact during the Game 1 loss. He simply can't match the speed and youthful exuberance of Deandre Ayton, a player who has the ability to defend the perimeter while also matching his size down low. The Bucks experimented with Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five down the stretch and it certainly appeared to be working, at least to some degree. Lopez is absolutely going to remain viable during the series but is going to have to mix things up a bit moving forward.
Lopez recorded 33 points (14-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks and two steals across 38 minutes in Thursday's win over the Hawks. Lopez came out of nowhere to deliver his first 30-point game of the season, and he stepped his game up at a critical time when the Bucks needed him the most. While the big man might not deliver 30-point performances on a nightly basis, he might be worth keeping close tabs on since he might have a bigger role on offense while Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) remains out. Lopez has now scored 15-plus points in three of his last six contests.
Lopez notched seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, a steal and a block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Hawks. Lopez wasn't productive in Game 4, but that has been a trend in the current series, as he has scored more than 10 points just once in four appearances against the Hawks. His role as a starter is completely safe, but he's not producing enough to be relevant in most fantasy formats. He's averaging just 10.0 points with 2.8 rebounds per game in the series.
Lopez recorded 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and a block across 26 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nets. Lopez might have scored in double digits for the fourth game in a row, but his impact on offense was minimal aside from the fact that he ended a four-game skid without a single three-pointer made. The big man has a secondary role on offense for the Bucks, but he's averaging 15.3 points per game through six playoff appearances thus far.
