With both playing in NYC, Brook Lopez had Thanksgiving dinner with twin brother Robin and Robin's girlfriend. "My mom came out, and she cooked for us. It was very relaxed," Brook said. "We hung out, we got Thanksgiving dinner, and two hours later, myself, Robin and his girlfriend went to 7-11 and got Slurpees, junk food, chips and queso. We just decided to all be fatties."

After Saturday night's game in Cleveland (11-4), the Nets will not have to travel outside of New York until Dec. 18. But as coach Lionel Hollins pointed out, their schedule remains tough. Brooklyn (3-12) has Detroit (8-7), Phoenix (7-8), New York (8-8) and Golden State (16-0) coming up. "We just gotta get to a point where we're consistent through 48 minutes," he said. The Nets are 2-5 in games within five points in the final five minutes (34.7% FGs, 28.6% 3s).

Brook Lopez was nearly traded to the Thunder at last season's trade deadline. Does he think about what it would've been like playing with KD and Russ in OKC? "It would have been interesting," said Lopez, who is very happy in Brooklyn, with a laugh. "You can ask them about it tomorrow and report back to me."
