No one doubts the Nets are playing better basketball the last few weeks. They've won four of their last six. Most of the success would seem to follow John Hollinger's theory that if you improve your worst position, you'll dramatically improve the team. For the Nets, of course, that meant acquiring small forwards Gerald Wallace and Gerald Green, who are averaging 27 points a game between them since joining the club.

Wallace, of course, has been filling the stat sheet. He's averaging 16.3 points a game over that six-game stretch. He's had five games with five or more rebounds, four games with five or more assists, three games with three or more steals and three games shooting better than 50 per cent. Over the last six, Green is averaging 13.8 and shooting 50 percent overall and Kris Humphries has given the Nets 15.5 and 11.0 over six.

The Cavaliers are hurting. They broke a nine-game losing streak vs. the Raptors Friday night, hurt by Kyrie Irving's sore right shoulder, Daniel Gibson's torn foot tendon, and Anthony Parker's bruised sternum. All are out Easter Sunday, their spots filled by D-League call-ups. The Cavs, in fact, have moved ahead of the Nets in call-ups, with seven. All that leaves Antawn Jamison to fill in.
