This is about as encouraging as a Brook Lopez shot chart will ever get

Brook Lopez Shot Chart

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.
