Brook Lopez Becomes Nets’ Career Scoring Leader


Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez passed Buck Williams to become the franchise’s career leading scorer with a jumper late in the fourth quarter of a 114-105 loss at Boston.

Lopez, who finished with 25 points, started slowly but passed Williams with a turnaround jumper on the baseline with just over 4 minutes left. Williams’ career spanned 17 seasons from 1981 to ’98, the first eight of which were with the New Jersey Nets.
