The first game without Brook Lopez didn’t go well for the Nets in the paint. It also didn’t help that his replacement, Kevin Garnett, didn’t play because of a stomach virus.

Lopez is out for at least the remainder of the preseason with a sprained foot. On Sunday, the Nets went with a small lineup, starting Mason Plumlee at center (6 points, 4 rebounds) and Mirza Teletovic at power forward (3, 6).

“We do (feel the loss of Lopez),” Johnson said. “He’s a beast.”
