The Nets lost this game to Boston, however, and in a very tight playoff race at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, lost the season tie-breaker to the Celtics, as well.

From the Associated Press:

“We knew this was a big game; you guys knew this was a big game,” Nets guard Deron Williams said. “It wasn’t just one game like it normally is when you lose to a team when you fall back one game in the standings. This was actually two because of the tiebreaker. Now they have the tiebreaker.”

The Celtics currently hold the eight seed, while the Nets are a game-and-a-half back, but also trail both the Pacers and the Hornets in the standings.
