When Brook Lopez put up 31 points and 14 rebounds Friday, it was the third time in his career, second time this season, he's broken 30 and 10. That puts him in rare company for a 21-year-old center. Basketball Reference, whose data goes back to 1986, reports only five other centers Lopez's age have put up 30 and 10 games. Only two of them did it more often: Shaquille O'Neal, 11 times, and Dwight Howard, four.
