Lopez Becomes a Student of the Game...and Duncan

New, comments

Brook Lopez went up against his idol --and role model-- Friday. While Tim Duncan had a typical game, 30 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks, Lopez didn't embarrass himself as he had feared. Before the game he said, "If I could become half the player he is, I feel I'd be all right in this league," Lopez said. The Nets rookie did just that: 15 points, 8 rebounds and a block. "I like him," Duncan said. "I thought he was solid".
