In the wake of Brook Lopez's season-ending injury, the Nets' big men need to elevate their game for Brooklyn to weather this perfect storm.
Scoring: DSince Lopez went down, Kevin Garnett has been installed as the starting center, with Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee backing him up, primarily. KG has struggled offensively in general this season, averaging 6.7 points per game on 37.2% shooting from the field, both career-lows by far. Additionally, in the past two games starting at center, Garnett has really struggled, shooting just 5-of-17 (29.4%) from the field. All in all, Garnett has posted just a 98.7 Offensive Rating (team points per 100 possessions with him on the court) this year, and a 93.5 Offensive Rating over the last two games.
