Time May Be on Their Side, But Time Off Isn't

The Nets come off a three day break Wednesday to face the Pacers. One would think that kind of a respite this late in a playoff hunt would be appreciated. But the record after long layoffs, like a lot of things this season, is confounding. Rather than coming back rested and ready, the Nets have returned looking lackadaisical and definitely not ready. A repeat of that now would be devastating, Lawrence Frank points out. Still, Jon Barry thinks the Nets are in the best playoff position of the "Futile Four".
