the reason was that the bulls can win a max of 42 games, the total the nets had. The cavs had won the season series with the bulls, meaning if the cavs lost all their games and went 42-40 and the Bulls won all their games and went 42-40, the cavs would own the playoff spot not the bulls. The nets are 1-1 against Chi Town this year. They needed to exceed the max. number of games that the bulls could win to clinch, which is what they did by winning game 43 tonightKrispyKreme23 said:I was wondering why, after we beat Memphis, we were still not in the Playoffs. We were 42-28 while the Cavs were 42-29 but they were on the front page of NBA.com, finally making the playoffs.
Anyway...great win! :banana:
