C Brook Lopez scored a season-high 36 points and came within three of matching his career-high point total. He also tied a career high with eight blocked shots. Lopez made six 3-pointers and shot 12 of 20 overall, but it was not enough as the Nets became the sixth team in NBA history to lose at least 16 consecutive home games.
“I’m disappointed that we didn’t get the win as a team, but I thought we played very well together and we picked it up when we needed to,” Lopez said. “They made some runs and we gave ourselves a shot right to the very end and there’s something to be said for that.”
