Things are changing fast out West. The Rockets, who only a few days ago looked close to a lock for the playoffs are now out of them. That means the Nets chances to get their pick and have at least one first round pick are fading. Houston has now lost four straight. All four were to teams they're fighting for the eighth seed in the West, the Suns, Jazz and Nuggets (twice). Worse, the Suns and Jazz hold the tiebreaker with the Rockets.

As Tim Bontemps pointed out yesterday, they have at least three winnable games: a pair with New Orleans – one at home, one on the road – as well as a home game against Golden State. Still, John Hollinger now puts their playoff chances at 30.2%, down from 90%. As for the Nets own pick, it's hovering between #6 and #7. They and the Raptors are now tied for sixth worst record. At #6, the Nets chances of a top three pick are 21.5%.
