Brook and Robin Lopez were both centers for Stanford in college. And tonight, they faced off against each other in the NBA, with one on the Nets and the other on the Hornets
It wasn't necessarily easy, but it was a win nonetheless. Encountering stiff competition from a New Orleans squad missing a bunch of players due to injury, mainly key reserve and former Net Ryan Anderson, the Nets were able to (barely) hold their lead down the stretch en route to a much-needed win to get the awful taste of the loss to the 76ers on Monday night out of their mouths. Although Joe Johnson was a late scratch (rest for foot injury), Brooklyn got star-like performances from both Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, in addition to key contributions from Gerald Wallace, Andray Blatche, MarShon Brooks, and, hell, even Reggie Evans.
Starting the game with the oddly-used lineup of C.J. Watson, Deron, Gerald, Reggie, and Brook, the Nets began hitting shots early on, taking advantage of...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Brooklyn Nets took on the New Orleans Hornets Tuesday night and there was a disturbing case of brother on brother crime which occurred. Brook Lopez didn’t hold back when he saw his brother blocking the rim during the third quarter and took the opportunity to create a poster of Robin to show off to the rest of the family. The result was near catastrophic, and we would love...
The Brooklyn Nets Brook Lopez proved that twin brothers often fight with a little bit more intensity than brothers that are separated by a year or more.
Brook’s Nets took on Robin’s Suns on Tuesday and when Nets point guard Deron Williams dished the rock to Brook he had no problem dunking all over his brother in front of an arena full of fans.
Talk about a conversation piece...
Tweet The New Orleans Hornets were in New York Tuesday for a meeting with the Brooklyn Nets and their only appearance in Barclays Center this season. More importantly, it meant Nets center Brook Lopez would be playing host to his twin brother, and Hornets center, Robin. During the third quarter Brook was a bit [...]
There may not have been some big, gangly, awkward fights in the Lopez household when twin NBA centers Brook and Robin were growing up. Brook, now with the Nets, has averaged 17.7 points and seven rebounds whereas Robin has averaged 6.9 points and 3.7 boards. Brook also had the upper hand in this slam in which brother Robin was slow to react to his brother crashing down on him....
The next time the Lopez clan gets together you know this play is going to come up.
Tuesday night the Brooklyn Nets and New Orleans Hornets had a game. Each has one of the Lopez twins; Brook plays for Brooklyn and Robin for New Orleans. During the third quarter Brook absolutely destroyed his brother with a powerful jam.
To add insult to injury, Robin can't even say ...
One can only imagine the thrill of having a twin sibling and you both achieve the ultimate success in your trade or sport you play.
That thrill has to double in size when you are able to posterize your twin with a nasty dunk during a NBA game. That is exactly the thrill Brook Lopez got when he dunked on brother Robin last night during the Brooklyn Nets win over the New Orleans...
As we go into the history of That NBA Lottery Pick, this is the first time that we can claim that an NBA player posterized his own brother in an official game.Check out the below clip from last night's Brooklyn Nets/New Orleans Hornets game as Brook Lopez threw down a monster dunk on his brother, Robin:
NEW YORK (AP) -- Brook Lopez scored 26 points and had a big dunk over twin brother Robin, Deron Williams added 21 points and 13 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the New Orleans Hornets 108-98 on Tuesday night.
Brooklyn squandered a 10-point lead in the third quarter before pulling off some timely baskets in the fourth to hang on for the win, bouncing back from a poor performance...
No two players in the NBA are more familiar with each other’s game than Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez. Brothers who grow up together typically play sports against one another, but brothers who are the exact same age and grow up to be 7-feet tall probably take that to another level.
With that in mind, it’s safe to assume the Lopez brothers are accustomed to dunking on one another...
Sibling rivalry is REAL. Check out the NBA’s version of it as twin brothers Robin and Brook Lopez faced off against each other last night when the Nets took on the Pelicans (Hornets.) Check out Brook as he gets the dish from Deron Williams and delivers a facial on his twin brother Robin.

Spencer Hawes is not having a good season.
No matter what his statistical line looks like, with his highest per-game scoring average in three years and a rebounding average that is only six-tenths off his season-high of last season, the underwhelming play of Hawes and his fellow Philadelphia big men has contributed hugely to the Sixers’ struggles. In fact, Hawes may be the one...
The Brooklyn Nets' Brook Lopez puts his brother, Robin, in his place with this insane dunk against the New Orleans Hornets.
Robin and Brook Lopez were teammates at Stanford but now that they are on different teams in the NBA. Brook plays for the Brooklyn Nets and Robin plays for New Orleans. Last night Brook dunked on Robin, check it out below. He just put his twin on a poster.

Talk about a confidence boost. New Orleans Hornets (or Pelicans, I get confused) swingman, Eric Gordon, cruises through the lane and hammers-home a big jam on not one, but two capable Brooklyn shot-blockers.
That’s going to leave a mark! The often-injured Gordon can get up, but fans may forget this at times, and apparently Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace fell asleep in the film...
After posterizing his twin brother, Robin, in the Nets-Hornets game at Barclays Center Tuesday night, Brook Lopez was put on a poster himself as 6’3 Eric Gordon soared past him and teammate Gerald Wallace for the slam.
