5. Brooklyn Nets (35-33)
The Brooklyn Nets have been performing at the highest level all season long and their feel-good success story does not seem like it will be stopping anytime soon. They have been closing out some real tough games this season and are outperforming all expectations. They are currently 7th in the Eastern Conference with a 35-33 record.
They have won 6 of their last 10 matches and are on a 3-game winning streak right now. They won all 3 of their games this week and against some easy opponents.
