Lopez hopes to create winning atmosphere with Lakers

LOS ANGELES–Twin brothers Brook and Robin Lopez were always up to something, even when they were 5 years old in the back seat of their mom's car on the way …

When “small ball” makes sense ... and when it doesn’t

When “small ball” makes sense ... and when it doesn’t

The Nets don’t have a lot of bigs and the bigs they do have pale in comparison to the big that they traded away in Brook Lopez. So, Kenny Atkinson has been enthused about trading height for speed. Will it work? It could in today’s NBA where traditional centers are less and less important. But as Brian Lewis points out, there are limits. “That’s where we’ve got to make a quick adjustment. If we see we’re getting absolutely torched from a defensive standpoint, we can’t do it,” Atkinson told Lewis. “I think a lot of that is game situation. Are we down 20 points and need...

Lakers vs. Jazz Final Score: Hot second unit not enough to lift Lakers in 105-99 loss to Jazz

Lakers vs. Jazz Final Score: Hot second unit not enough to lift Lakers in 105-99 loss to Jazz

The Los Angeles Lakers dropped to 3-1 in preseason play with a loss to the new-look Utah Jazz. Following a strong showing in Sin City on Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers dropped their third game of the preseason, losing to the visiting Utah Jazz 105-99 behind Rudy Gobert’s 29 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks. With his unique combination of size and athleticism, Gobert caused a ton of problems for the Lakers, namely Brook Lopez, who failed to capitalize on his impressive debut for the purple and gold. Lopez finished the night with just seven points and struggled mightily from the field,...
Watch: Brook Lopez drilling threes from outside is pretty awesome

Watch: Brook Lopez drilling threes from outside is pretty awesome

Alright, Brook. Brook Lopez finally made his Los Angeles Lakers debut, and with that came some actual floor spacing. He drilled back-to-back threes during the Lakers’ win over the Sacramento Kings, immediately showing his first season as a three-point shooting big man wasn’t a fluke. We took a closer look at how his debut went right over here, but if you just want to bask in some three-point shooting glory from Brook, this video from after practice Monday here will do the trick: Brook Lopez: master of the no-jump 3-ball. Such soft touch. Amazing he had taken only 31 threes in 493 NBA...
Lakers Notebook: Brook Lopez makes his impact felt in promising debut

Lakers Notebook: Brook Lopez makes his impact felt in promising debut

Brook finally made his debut with the Lakers, and it was great seeing a versatile center at work again. Brook Lopez’s Los Angeles Lakers debut finally came to fruition Sunday night in Las Vegas. After years of his name being floated in Lakers rumors, just as it seemed that boat had finally sailed, he finds himself home in Southern California. The Lakers acquired a career 18.6 point per game scorer who just re-discovered himself as a stretch big man, and in a vacuum (Dyson, thanks), it makes plenty of sense they’d want to modernize their offense with actual floor spacing. The problem is...

Heat still annoyed Nets kept them out of the playoffs

Heat still annoyed Nets kept them out of the playoffs

They say time heals all wounds. Apparently an entire offseason wasn’t enough time to heal the Heat’s anger at the Nets. As of Wednesday, Miami was still salty over the Nets sitting Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker in Brooklyn’s 2016-17 season-ending loss at Chicago. If the Nets had beaten the Bulls, that result...

D'Angelo Russell adds his brand to new-look Nets

From the moment D'Angelo Russell joined the Nets in the Brook Lopez trade in June, the focus has been on how the chemistry would work between he and Jeremy Lin. Would they be dueling point guards or deferring backcourt mates?

Nets open preseason schedule vs Knicks

Nets open preseason schedule vs Knicks

We’re not back yet, but we’re on the way. The Brooklyn Nets underwent a lot of changes this summer and hope to get back on the right track after two difficult seasons. With D’Angelo Russell replacing Brook Lopez as the face of the franchise, Brooklyn will look to speed things up even more. The opponent tonight will be the New York Knicks. Like the Nets, the Knicks underwent a lot of changes this summer as they look to rebuild with a younger, more dynamic roster. With Carmelo Anthony in Oklahoma City, the franchise is firmly in the hands of Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks added some...

Brooklyn’s “Three Party” includes just about everyone

Brooklyn’s “Three Party” includes just about everyone

The Brooklyn Nets dig the long ball We learned that last season. The rise of Brook Lopez from three-point hobbyist to damn-near dead-eye big-guy was only the prime example, as the Nets hoisted the fourth most three’s in the NBA in 2017-18. But, they also had one of the league’s worst downtown percentage makes from deep, fourth from the bottom actually. Still, Atkinson opened our eyes to what’s, ideally, a part of Brooklyn culture. Pace. And. Space. At today’s team practice, we spotted just about every Net on the roster taking (and sometimes making) long range bombs at one point or...

Lakers Injury News: Brook Lopez could miss preseason opener vs. Timberwolves

Lakers Injury News: Brook Lopez could miss preseason opener vs. Timberwolves

The Lakers might be without their starting center to open preseason. The Los Angeles Lakers are moving full speed ahead with training camp underway, but there’s been a noticeable absence of two key big men. Both Andrew Bogut and Brook Lopez have been absent from some of the action, and head coach Luke Walton doesn’t sound optimistic about Lopez being ready to go for Game 1 of preseason. “Brook probably won’t play on Saturday, so there’s still a starting spot open for that game. Ultimately everything we’re doing right now is about getting ready for the start of the season, and...

Will Russell and Crabbe buy into Nets’ defense-first philosophy?

Will Russell and Crabbe buy into Nets’ defense-first philosophy?

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The key to the Nets’ second-half improvement last season was a quantum leap on defense. Since then they traded away all-time blocks leader Brook Lopez, and added porous defenders D’Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe. No wonder the emphasis on the first day of training camp at the U.S. Naval Academy was defense,...

Brook Lopez say Lakers believe they can make playoffs this season

The Los Angeles Lakers have not made the postseason since 2013 when they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs during the first round. But after working towards a rebuild during the offseason, including trading D’Angelo Russell, the team will have a new look. One of their key additions was Brook Lopez.

They also added star...

Brook Lopez, one of few veterans on young Lakers team, might be biggest kid of all

SANTA MONICA — After visiting Disneyland twice in his first three days living in Los Angeles, Brook Lopez knew he had to rein things in if he had any hope of getting himself ready for his 10th NBA season and first with a new team. “I’ve been trying to be good,” he said last week, “trying […]
