While Jason Kidd was out with a bruised left knee, Richard Jefferson posted a career high in assists on Sunday and a season high in rebounds the Wednesday before that while averaging 24.4 points per game on 52.7 percent shooting as the Nets clinched the Atlantic Division title.
The Nets can win their last six games of the season by 50 points each night and they would still be the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Or they can lose every one of those games by 50 and still be the second seed.
