Good breakdown by D'Allesandro on the teams the Nets need to pass, and their remaining schedules:
NETS (28-36, 11 at home, 7 on road) -- They have the most home-friendly schedule in the field, but look at it pragmatically: If they don't sweep Indiana next week (Sunday at Indy, Tuesday here), they'll still be roughly five games out with 14 to play, and that's insurmountable. Three games out -- which a sweep would create -- is actually doable.
