How good was Brook Lopez's 37-point performance vs. the Pistons Friday night? According to Basektball Reference, it was the second highest point total for a Nets center since 1986...and maybe ever.
Only Sam Bowie's 38 points vs. Minnesota on March 20, 1991 was better. It was Lopez's fourth 30+ game in the last two years. Since 1986, Nets centers have scored 30 or more points ten times. Basketball Reference data only goes back to 1986-87.
