HOT: Brook Lopez was unstoppable for the first three-plus quarters, fouling out Chris Wilcox and getting Greg Monroe in foul trouble in the process.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Jordan Farmar put up solid stats in place of Williams, who did not make the trip while getting his injured right wrist examined. Farmar had 18 points and 11 assists while making just two turnovers. Farmar has averaged 14.3 points the last three games.

|On why Brook's last FG came w/ 9:50 left:
"There was a lot of times where he just wasn't open. They had a guy in front and in back of him, and other guys have to make plays in that situation, whether it's flash a high-low, or play on the weakside, we have to be able to just do it without thinking."
