When the Nets beat the Spurs without Kevin Garnett early on in the season Gregg Popovich said that the Nets are going to be a monster. After that game, Brooklyn went on a massive cold streak and trade rumors started to circulate around the team. After the Nets win on Tuesday against the Bulls similar optimism that was present after the Nets win versus the Spurs is starting to resurface.

The question now is can the Nets keep up this level of play, or will they go through another losing streak. Consistency separates the good teams from the great teams and so far Brooklyn has been a very inconsistent team this year. If the Nets can establish some sort of consistency in 2015 they can be a great team, but if they don’t play with consistency, expect them to be exactly where they stand right now, a mediocre team.
