How difficult is it that a pivot shine in today’s NBA. And yet Brook
Lopez could save the bucks and their season last night with a minute to go. After having a fantastic match against his former team, Lopez had a decisive action in the final stretch.
Kevin Durant, who had already 48 points, attacked the ring with one minute remaining and 111-111 on the scoreboard. He managed to leave Middleton behind but what he did not expect was meet the pop that Lopez put him at the height of the rim.
The basket would have been the advantage for the Nets that, however, failed to score again throughout overtime. Milwaukee had two points on the next play at Middleton’s hands, and two final free throws to win the game.
