Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez is known for getting dunked on—a lot. But during Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks, he was having none of that.

Though the Nets lost the game 129-125, Lopez kept it close all night. He finished with 36 points, 8 blocks and four rebounds. He became the first player in NBA history to record eight blocks and six 3-pointers in a game. Previously, no player had more than two 3-pointers in an 8-block game.
Despite his appearance on several posters this season, the 7-footer is still averaging 1.8 blocks per game. He is also having a career year in points (20.8) and assists (2.5); and for the first time in his career, he is regularly shooting from deep—and making 34 percent of them. Currently the 28-year-old is on the trading block.
