    I'm going to say no. I think the way the Raps have been playing is more sustainable over the remainder of the schedule than the way these teams have been playing for the remainder of their schedules. I will say that I would not want to meet the Nets in the 1st round, if they are healthy with an experienced KG and PP on the court, they will be a tough out.
    are you talking about the raps recent 11-4 record sustainable (ie. going .733 the rest of the way)? or even out at .500?

    If you look closely at the Nets schedule in particular, its pretty tough over the next month. If the Raps beat them tomorrow, they will be at a huge advantage over them.

    True the Nets and Knicks are playing a little better of late, but I'm appalled at how many teams have played loose and disinterested against them - the Heat last night being a great example, dog days of January or not. What will be interesting is that the Nets and Knicks were so bad for a long time that teams clearly started taking them less seriously. With their winning streaks in January now that's probably no longer the case, and their next 10-15 games will be really interesting - the Raps started to become a team to take seriously a few weeks ago, so lets see how the Knicks and Nets react - honestly I think in two-three weeks time we'll know almost all we need to about where everyone will finish in the Atlantic

    Somewhere in btw I would guess. I really only said that the way they are playing is more sustainable for them then, say, the way the NY teams are playing is sustainable for those teams. We have the great D going for us, great chemistry as well as strength of schedule. We keep playing with heart and hustle and grit like we have been, and we will have a 3rd or 4th seed IMO.

    It seems odd to say this and be realistic, but we should be the 3rd seed.
    It's ours to lose (barring any changes).

    Anybody disagree?
    The East is just sooo weak.

    Heat are currently losing by 12 to the nets in the 3rd.

    I don't think it should matter, since Brooklyn has no Williams or Lopez.

    Brooklyn has officially turned a corner and are starting to look like the team most thought they would be when pierce and KG joined the team. Battle for the Atlantic is heating up.

    Yep. And just less than a week the nets jumped from something like 13th in the east to 7th. If we lose the top Atlantic spot we might not even make the playoffs with both Chicago and Washington also near the .500 mark.

    It is indeed. We still have to go @Brooklyn twice. This game is a must win if wish to win Atlantic.

    I still think the Cavs have way to much internal problems to compete with us and Atl is 4-4 without Horford but Millsap has been struggling a lot being the 1st option so I don't think they can keep up this play and The 2 New York teams are wild cards because they might win 10 in a row then lose 15 right after
