Brook Lopez is the Nets' youngest player and the one with the longest streak of consecutive games played--89. He is also the team's constant right now, a player who despite his youth can be counted on. He proved it Saturday against the Celtics by recovering from a bad stretch in the third quarter and carrying the team on his back the rest of the way. He's also rapidly moving into the top rank of NBA centers.
