Very simple guide to the Nets playoff race

It's very simple.

THE NETS CLINCH THE FIVE SEED IF:

  • They beat either the Knicks in Brooklyn tonight OR the Cavaliers in Cleveland tomorrow.
  • The Wizards lose to the Celtics tomorrow night.

If the Nets lose both and the Wizards beat Boston tomorrow, the Nets will be the sixth seed.

THE NETS FACE THE CHICAGO BULLS IN THE FIRST ROUND IF:

  • The Raptors beat the Knicks tomorrow OR the Bulls lose to the Bobcats tomorrow.

THE NETS FACE THE TORONTO RAPTORS IN THE FIRST ROUND IF:

  • The Bulls beat the Bobcats AND the Raptors lose to the Knicks tomorrow.

There it is. That simple. Priority is to win at least one of the last two games.
