Eye on Basketball Podcast: Brooklyn nets itself a rivalry

Matt Moore joins me for today's podcast to discuss the Brooklyn Nets' sweep of the Miami Heat in the regular season. They completed the 4-0 series set against the Heat thanks to a Mason Plumlee block of a winning dunk attempt by LeBron James. This was the third one-point victory over the Heat by the Nets this season. How much does this matter for the postseason? Are the Nets a legitimate threat? Do they need Deron Williams to come up huge or is he mostly irrelevant at this point? Could the Nets defeat the Indiana Pacers?

The playoff picture in the league is shaping up quite nicely. What do the Heat and/or Pacers have to do to secure the 1-seed in the East? What do the Atlanta Hawks have to do to fend off the New York Knicks for the 8-seed? Can the Charlotte Bobcats get the 6-seed and how many games can they win in the first round? Will the Los Angeles Clippers give the Oklahoma City Thunder a scare for the 2-seed with a win Wednesday night? Who will be the last team out of the Western Conference playoffs?

We discuss all of this, plus the Golden State Warriors' assistant coaching staff, the Los Angeles Lakers extending Mitch Kupchak as GM, and preview tonight's games.
