As we enter the home stretch of the NBA regular season, teams are clamoring for playoff home-court advantage. The Miami Heat have the best record in the Eastern Conference, but tonight’s loss to the Nets puts the Pacers right on their heels.
But just because Brooklyn bested the Heat tonight, doesn’t mean Lebron considers them a viable threat.
Craig Sager asked LeBron if the Nets are Heat’s biggest challenge in the East. “Get out of here, Craig. Next question.”

Well, there you have it.
Lebron is right. The Nets are playing some of their best basketball of the season and although they swept the regular season series, I can’t see them beating the Heat in a 7-game playoff series.
