(caveat: I chose the date that was most beneficial to the Nets, so keep that in mind)

Miami 28-8 .778
Detroit 25-13 .658
Chicago 26-14 .650
Boston 24-14 .632
NETS 25-15 .625
Indiana 22-17 .564
Philly 21-17 .553
Washington 19-20 .487
Cleveland 16-22 .421
Toronto 15-21 .417
Milwaukee 16-23 .410
Orlando 15-24 .385
New Orleans 13-25 .342
New York 12-26 .316
Charlotte 7-34 .171
Atlanta 4-36 .100

That's a pretty strong record over 40 games--just a game back of second-best in the conference. Of course, that was despite all the injuries. January 17 coincides with when Vince began to "get it" and ran off that string of 40-point games. if my memory serves.

Again, this raises the question: just how badly do the Nets need a new starting PF? If they can win 62% of their games WITHOUT one of their "big three," and despite all the other changes that have occurred during that period, perhaps we just need to shore up our bench to return to the elite of the league.

Agreed, adding Richard Jefferson and this team is smoking. A PF is just a bonus. Come the playoffs we'll see why we need a big man though.

Yes.

I don't think the Hornets are as bad as people think. They played hard vs. us. I'll remember that game... we were lucky to win at the end.
