"Brook is obviously, in my opinion, showing a bit of an All-Star hangover," Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said during a Thursday interview on ESPN NewYork 98.7.
Lopez is 9-for-30 from the field and has played just 6.7 seconds in the last two fourth quarters. The Nets did beat the Milwaukee Bucks in both games.
Lopez, 24, averaged 19.0 points and 7.4 rebounds on 52 percent shooting in the first half of the season.
