Robin Lopez helped his teammate score by getting hit in the face by a pass

Monday January 16th, 2017

Bulls center Robin Lopez is a real team player. I mean, how many guys out there are willing to take a pass to the face just to help the team get a bucket?

That’s what RoLo did on Sunday night, taking a dish from Michael Carter-Williams straight to the grill, and sending it in the direction of Taj Gibson for an easy dunk.

Lopez tried to explain after the game what he was going for.

Sadly he didn’t get an assist even though he really deserved one.
