No hiding the fact that the Nets are a bad team right now. Five straight losses, 11 games under .500 and out of the playoffs. Those who rank NBA teams have taken note as well. John Schuhmann of NBA.com has them dropping from #19 to #21, Marc Stein of ESPN puts them at #22, also down two, while Marty Burns of SI, a relative optimist most of the season, has them down four positions, to #22. Burns wonders what happened to Devin Harris's shooting. Who's No. 1? The Houston Rockets.
