Brotherly love has no room on the basketball courts, and Brook Lopez, the better of the Lopez brothers in the NBA, showed that with a vicious dunk on his twin brother, Robin Lopez, as the Brooklyn Nets dispatched of the New Orleans Hornets.
There was no doubt who is the better of the former Stanford players, as the Nets’ center scored 26 points and grabbed 5 rebounds as the Nets beat the New Orleans Hornets 108-90. Robin had 15 points and 8 rebounds, but struggled stopping his brother in the paint, with the Lopez on Lopez violence highlighted by Brook’s nasty dunk on his brother.
The Nets have now improved to 38-27, hoping they’ll manage and get home court advantage for at least the first round in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Lopez, part of the core four the Nets were promoting themselves with earlier this season, is averaging 18.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game this season after almost being traded in the summer.
