Coming off an injury-plagued 2011-2012 season, Brook Lopez is determined to get back on track in his new home, and from what we've seen so far, he's on point.
The seven-foot center was dominant against the Sixers, scoring 23 points and grabbing nine rebounds in 33 minutes of play. Lopez also added three assists and a block to the box score and was efficient shooting the basketball.
Lopez was 8-of-12 from the field and 7-of-8 from the charity stripe and was exceptional at drawing contact and turning it into three-point plays, especially in the first quarter.
While his defense most definitely needs a lot of work, there's no doubting his offensive production this preseason
Here's a look at what Lopez has done this season:
|Date ||Opponent ||Points ||Rebounds
|10/13 ||Philadelphia ||19 ||9
|10/15 ||Washington ||18 ||11
|10/18 ||Boston ||14 ||7
|10/19 ||Philadelphia ||23 ||9
