After a getting off to a disaster of a start, the Brooklyn Nets have turned things around. They have won four of their last five games and at 29-29, they are back to .500 for the first time since the first week of the season when they started the year 2-2.
The Nets are now the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. They are just 3.5 games (and 3 in the loss column) behind the Toronto Raptors in the Atlantic Division and the third seed and are 3.0 games (and 2 in the loss column) behind the Chicago Bulls for the fourth seed, so they are still in decent position to earn home court in the first round of the playoffs.
Veteran point guard Deron Williams believe their best basketball is still ahead of them.

On the season, Williams is averaging 14.0 points, 6.4 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game in 42 games for the Nets this season.
