Nicolas Claxton of the Brooklyn Nets and Brook Lopez of the Milwaukee Bucks have continued to play significant roles as big men with the most blocks this season. They’ve been neck and neck for most of the season.
Entering action on Tuesday night, they sit in a tie atop the leaderboard with 143 blocks. Claxton only suited up twice over the last week and recorded four blocks over that span, highlighted by a three-block performance on February 26 against the Atlanta Hawks. Lopez also played in two contests, which saw him record no blocks against the Miami Heat, followed by a four-block performance against the Phoenix Suns on February 26.
Claxton and Lopez have their work cut out for them at the top, with Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies continuing to close the gap. The Grizzlies forward sits seven blocks behind the duo after recording five blocks in a two-game sample size last week.
One player that had another noteworthy performance over the last week was Walker Kessler of the Utah Jazz. The rookie had two outstanding showings last week, tallying a seven-block game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, followed by a five-block game against the San Antonio Spurs.
