A three game losing streak has its consequences, like an eight-place drop in NBA.com's ranking to #19. John Schuhmann says the Nets have to find options beyond Devin harris and Vince Carter. ESPN's Marc Stein suggests (again) that he jinxed the Nets, but has them at a respectable #17. SI's Marty Burns also has them at #17, but notes how big this week will be for New Jersey. Hollinger's computer? #23.
