With the NBA's All-Star Weekend just two weeks away, it's finally a practical time to start taking a look at potential playoff match ups for the Brooklyn Nets—both the best case and worst case opponents.
The Nets are currently 27-19 (as of Friday, February 1) and fourth in the Eastern Conference. At this point in the season, that would give them a series against the No. 5 seed in the East—currently, the Atlanta Hawks.
We all know that there's still a lot of basketball left to play, though.
There's a strong chance that the Nets will end up finishing with one of the top four seeds. Under P.J. Carlesimo, Brooklyn is playing with relative consistency and any team chemistry issues that existed under Avery Johnson have vanished.
There are holes on the roster and in their game strategies, though, and some opponents will be able to expose them in a playoff series.
It all hinges on playing the right teams at the right times.
