See You in Toronto

The Nets and Bulls played like it was the first game of the playoffs Wednesday night at the Meadowlands. Except that they won't be playing each other when the postseason begins this weeked, because the Nets finished their season strong, winning 10 of their last 12 games, including a nine-point victory over Chicago in the season finale that clinched them the sixth seed and a first-round matchup with the Toronto Raptors. A 15-4 fourth-quarter run was the difference as the Nets had five players score 15 points or more, led by Vince Carter, who finished one assist shy of another triple-double. Mikki Moore scored 22 points on 8-of-11 from the floor, a performance that gave him the NBA's shooting percentage title, and Boki Nachbar (on the outside) and Josh Boone (on the inside) each scored 15 points off the bench. Meanwhile, Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson combined to shoot just 6-of-26 from the field, but Kidd finished with 11 boards and 11 assists, while RJ got to the line 14 times to score 21 points.
