We're now 15 and 5 since March 5 and easily one of the hottest teams in the league as the regular season comes to a close, and we're not in the stupid playoffs. Only the Knicks.
As far as the Nets, they are tanking on purpose to try to slip down a rank in the playoffs. They want the 6 seed to play Toronto. Brooklyn wants absolutely nothing to do with the 4 seed Chicago. They remember how that story plays out.
