Brook Lopez got caught doing his best Stephen Curry impression.
Brook Lopez is scorching the Heat tonight. He scored 26 points in the first half while knocking down a career-high six three-pointers. From the tip, Hassan Whiteside had no answer for the Nets’ center as he easily scored in the paint and spread the floor shooting 6-of-9 from three-point land.
Lopez started the game by making six of his first seven shots and scoring 16 of the Nets’ first 17 points. Tonight, it looks like he’s reverting to his All-Star form as he puts the Nets on his back at the Barclays Center.

With the trade deadline less than a month away, expect speculation to increase around the seven footer’s future with the Nets. Brooklyn is in the midst of a rebuild, and many teams around the league can benefit from the addition of Lopez. Will one be willing to part with two first-round draft picks to get him?
