Brook Lopez had 32 points, a season-high 18 rebounds and 1 nasty dunk on Ersan Illysaova to start a third OT in a 129-127 victory for the Nets on Friday. Ersan fouled out with 20 points and 13 rebounds on that play.
“It wasn’t just that one play,” Lopez said. “We stuck with it the entire game. We never gave up. We were down big and our bench was huge.”
