The New Orleans Hornets were in New York Tuesday for a meeting with the Brooklyn Nets, which marked 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 less than hospitable when he took a pass from Deron Williams and soared past his brother for an emphatic finish.
I would imagine Robin won’t be allowed to forget that anytime soon.
The Nets went on to win the game 108-98. Brook finished with 26 points (10-15 FG), five rebounds, and three blocked shots. Robin scored 15 (6-10 FG) with eight rebounds and one block.
