When you've lost five in a row and are 5-13 since last you saw .500, you can't expect to go up in the power rankings. The Nets are now spiraling down in pundits' eyes, with putting them at #22, ESPN at #24 and SI at #20. Marc Stein mentions Vince Carter's continuing slump. Indeed, VC is averaging a mere 16.8 ppg since the Nets were last at .500, shooting 39.6% overall and 34.6% from deep.
