LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP
The Nets are competing to make the playoffs and their chances are clearly on the rise. In our pre-season forecast they had a 1.3% chance of making the playoffs. On 6/22 they had a 0.4% chance before increasing to 85.9% on 1/31. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 66.2%. Their chances of getting out of the first round is just 11% and their chances of reaching the conference finals is 2.1%. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the East at 0.2% (400/1 odds) and a 0.1% chance of winning it all (1000/1).

NEXT 6 GAME OUTLOOK: PARTLY CLOUDY
The Nets next 6 game forecast looks like a mix of 'clouds and sun'. They have 7 games where they are expected to be competitive with at least a 45% chance of winning, and 3 games where they are a clear underdog. The most likely scenario over the next 6 games is a record of 3-3 (30% chance). Their chances of winning 5 or more are 9.5%. Their chances of winning their next 6 are 1.5%. With a -0.38 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 6 games they may find themselves further behind in the conference. They are ahead of the Hornets by 2 games. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Hornets. There is only a -0.14 advantage in projected wins over their next 6 games.
