For the Nets to make the playoffs, they would have to win all their games and the Pistons would have to lose all of theirs. Not gonna happen. But the Nets, who have more than a few regrets, are still playing hard and there's no talk of tanking. It's all about pride, they say. Rod Thorn has noticed as well. "It's encouraging that the team is still playing hard and trying".
