The Brooklyn Nets have been building momentum all season long, and it seems like the team is heating right when it matters the most after a poor start to the year.
Just ask Deron Williams. The All-Star PG had a stellar effort against the Phoenix Suns as he led his team to a huge 108-95 win that puts them one step closer to making the playoffs. Williams ended with 28 points, shooting 11-of-13 from the floor, and he led the Nets to a much-needed win that extends their home winning streak to nine games.
This win could become even more valuable towards the end of the regular season. With their win over the Suns and the loss from the Charlotte Bobcats, Brooklyn is now 2.5 games over Charlotte for one of the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. Based on how the team has played in recent weeks, they appear to be a lock to make the postseason.
The Nets will battle the Bobcats on Wednesday and if they can get another victory, it would be a giant step towards securing their place in the playoffs. The Nets should be just fine, and they could be a team that nobody wants to face in the postseason. They seem to be a tough rival when playing in front of their fans, and all signs are pointing to the team peaking at the right time.
