Brook Lopez has won the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award for the second straight week, becoming the first player in Nets' history to win the award in back-to-back weeks and the only player this season to do so.
Here are your details on how Lopez won the award:
Lopez is the 23rd Nets’ player to capture the award a total of 41 times. Deron Williams previously won the award this season for games played from November 3-9. Lopez led the Nets to a 3-1 week, averaging 20.8 ppg on 59.4 percent shooting, 10.3 rpg and 2.0 bpg in 36.0 mpg. He posted two double-doubles and one 30-point game during his most recent four-game stretch.
Lopez kicked off the week by posting a team-high 24 points (11-of-17 FG), a game-high 11 rebounds and two blocks in 40 minutes in a 111-106 victory over the Indiana Pacers at Barclays Center on Tuesday. He followed up that performance by totaling 18 points (9-of-15 FG), seven rebounds and a game-high five blocks in 34 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday, highlighted by a game-winning layup with 2.0 seconds to play to break a 98-98 tie and give the Nets a 100-98 victory at Madison Square Garden. On Friday, Lopez registered 30 points (13-of-24 FG), a game-high 17 rebounds (including a career-high-tying 10 offensive rebounds) and one block in 44 minutes in a 114-109 win over the Toronto Raptors in Brooklyn. He finished off the week by recording 11 points (5-of-8 FG) and six rebounds in just 26 minutes in a loss at Atlanta on Saturday.
Pretty impressive, Mr. Lopez.
The Brooklyn Nets continue their fight for a playoff spot on Monday night against the Portland Trail Blazers and his brother, Robin, who did NOT win Player of the Week.
