Looking at the schedule, its pretty interesting. March has some very winnable games (yes, the other teams say the same thing when they see the Nets on their schedule), with 11 out of 18 games against sub-.500 teams. So, it looks like the Nets can possibily go on a nice streak and win 12 or 13 games that month. That would put them in good shape come April, but the schedule becomes much more difficult. In Aoril, under this scenario, the Nets would need to win 10 or so games against a very strong group of teams (including Philly 3 times, Miami, NY, Boston, and LA).
So, I predict that the Nets will be very much in the playoff picture by the end of March, but will ultimately fall short during tough stretch in April. I predict a final record of 29-37 and about 3 games or so out of the playoffs.
