Brook Lopez had a terrible few minutes of basketball Thursday night in Cleveland. (Getty)

For a 7-foot center Brook Lopez is a pretty darn good shooter. He’s extended his range to 23-feet, and, most importantly for contextual purposes on Thursday night, he’s a 79.4 percent free-throw shooter. He’s 79.7 percent for his career.

Not exactly the best stretch of Lopez’s 10-year career. Not quite.
