Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the East is this powerhouse conference, but is it possible we are overrating how bad the conference is. I understand it's not as strong as the west, but It appears a bunch of teams have found their rhythm as of late:
Raptors: 38-20 since the Gay trade
Nets: 31-13 in the New Year
Bulls: 32-14 in the New Year
Wizards: 15-8 over last 23 games
Now we know Indy and Miami are the top teams, but it appears that these 4 teams have found their rhythm as of late at the perfect time. I think the East will be a bit more interesting than everyone thinks.
