For the third straight year, the Brooklyn Nets will be in the playoffs, the first step toward the ultimate goal... and in doing so, they got some revenge against the Raptors who had beaten them in 20 of their last 22 meetings.

After two losses to the relocated Raps, the Nets avoided a season-sweep with a 116-103 win in Tampa. As a result, Brooklyn became the first Eastern Conference team to clinch a post-season berth. They also improved to 42-20 on the season, one short of the franchise record for games over .500.

“It’s great. We have our eyes on bigger things but a nice first step to clinch a berth,” Steve Nash said. “For this group, facing all we faced to be in this position with 10 games left is very positive.”
