The seeding is set. The Nets will have homecourt advantage next weekend. They don't yet know who they'll play. Could be the Bulls or the Hawks. Won't know for a few days. Also, what the Nets don't know yet is who will among them face the Wizards.
The Nets lost in Toronto, 93-87, losing any hope of getting the 3rd seed in the East and any chance of winning 50 games in their first season in Brooklyn. The Nets are now locked into the 4th seed, awaiting their first-round opponent.
Surprise, the Raptors are hot. The Nets' next opponent may have a losing record and may have lost a number of their best players to injury, but they've won two straight, both against the Bulls (thank you!) and four of their last five.
