With the Nets’ loss, the Wizards win over Boston, and Bulls’ loss to the Bobcats, the Raptors have sewn up the three seed, Washington has leapt over Brooklyn for the five, and Brooklyn will be the six.
The Nets will play Game One in Toronto on Saturday.
Brian ErniWe’ll preview this match up plenty more before Saturday, but at first blush, this is going to be a doozy. These two teams have played insanely close games this season, and I think this is going to be one heck of a test for Brooklyn. Toronto closes better than any team in the league, so the Nets will have to build up some leads and outplay the Raptors down the stretch.
