You would have thought that the Nets would have gotten a boost from Saturday's win over the Bulls in Monday's Power Rankings, but then Ersanity happened on Sunday. Oh well. As a result, there was little movement in the rankings with the Nets hovering around No. 26, just above teams like the Hornets, Wizards and Bobcats. Ugh.
A lot of the underlying reasoning for the lack of movement is that everyone is waiting to see how long it will take for Brook Lopez to get back in game shape (looked like a long process Sunday). Also, there's this nagging March 15 date that everyone seems concerned about. Who knew?
