G22-G36 Brooklyn Nets 15-Game Stretch in Dec 2017 Offers Best Chance to Reach 0.500
The Nets record entering December 2017 is 8-13 which is not too bad considering the slew of injuries that have occurred to their top players such as Jeremy Lin, D’Angelo Russell in most games. Rondae-Hollis Jefferson, Alan Crabbe, Trevor Booker, and Jarrett Allen also did not play in some games due to injuries.
The Nets is ranked 12th in the Eastern Conference with 8-13 record so they would their work cut out for them if they still have hope to reach the eighth seed to qualify for a playoff spot.
There is a 15-game stretch in December for the Nets and only 6 are against possible playoff teams (Wizards, Knicks, Raptors, Spurs, Celtics) currently in the Top 8 of their conference. It might present the best opportunities for the Nets to climb back to 0.500 record. Their January schedule presents 12 out of 17 games against playoff teams.
