In their second to final game of the season, big man Brook Lopez becomes the Brooklyn Nets all-time organizational leading scorer.

  • Brooklyn Nets 105 (20-61)
  • Boston Celtics 114 (52-19)

  • TD Garden Center, Boston, MA

Sure, you have every right to call the Brooklyn Nets season whatever you’d like. Currently playing out the string with a 20-61 record, good enough for worst in the entire Association will afford the fan that very right.

Still, the way the Nets have played down the stretch has provided much hope. On Monday night against the tough Boston Celtics, while a win wasn’t in order, something else pretty special took place.

Big man Brook Lopez became the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.

Thanks to 25 points on the night, one shy of team-leader Jeremy Lin (26), Lopez surpassed Buck Williams as the top dog.

While, admittedly, the all-time leading number isn’t impressive, Lopez, at just 29-years-old, accomplishes the feat at quite the young age.

As far as the game was concerned, it was no contest. The Nets entered the fourth quarter down 13 points and could never make it a game.
