This is what a Brook Lopez shot chart should look like, all day, every day... MORE →
Small sample size theater is all over this one, but it's also in line with Wallace's career arc and wisdom about his game: he's excellent attacking the rim and finding little cuts in the defense, doesn't shoot much (or well) from midrange, and is best shooting long-range shots from the corner.
This chart is similar to Gerald Wallace's shot chart last year -- he was active and effective attacking the rim, but limited his midrange jumper and wasn't particularly effective shooting threes.
The image above is Brook Lopez's shot chart from Thursday night's 102-97 victory against the Boston Celtics. 10 shots from within five feet (most in the restricted area), four just east of it. 9 made baskets from within five feet (8 within the restricted area.)
Last night was the second straight game we saw this type of attack from Lopez -- in fact, in Tuesday's game against the Celtics, he also shot 9-10 from within five feet. He is now 38-57 from that range on the season.
