Hollinger: 'Time for excuses is over'

John Hollinger, writing in the New York Sun, analyzes the Eastern Conference playoff race as four teams--New Jersey, New York, Indiana and Orlando--battle like punch-drunk prize fighters for the final two positions. Hollinger likes the Nets chances because Richard Jefferson is back and seven of the Nets' next nine opponents have losing records. "If they fail to take advantage, they have nobody to blame but themselves," he writes.
