Lopez Becoming Nets' Third Option

Brook Lopez once said he would be satisfied being Josh Boone's understudy. No more. In 19 starts, Lopez is averaging 12.5 ppg, 8.5 rpg and 2.31 bpg, with five double-doubles. He's fifth in the NBA in blocks. One thing he isn't getting is calls. In his 22, 13, 5 game vs. Miami, Lopez didn't get to the foul line once. Lopez says he'll just "play my game, try to go up strong, and hopefully get lucky."
