There was much finger-pointing Monday over why Brook Lopez's touches dropped dramatically as the game went on...and the Nets lost. Devin Harris said he was partially to blame. Keyon Dooling said Lopez must demand the ball. Kiki Vandeweghe thinks force-feeding works if there are reliable perimeter shooters on the court (there aren't). Still, Lopez himself says it's not in his "nature" to be so demanding.
