With 20 games left in the season and playoff seedings now becoming a major story line, it’s time to take the occasional look at how the competition is doing. Last night the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks, both ahead of Boston in the division/East, took losses.  The Nets got down big at halftime but rode Deron Williams (27 points, 13 assists) to stay in the game in the second half.  They cut it to 5 in the third, but the shots just stopped falling.  Spencer Hawes nearly had a triple double (24 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists) in a 106-97 Sixers win. The Knicks never really had much of a chance in their game against Golden State.  Carmelo Anthony played, but he was horribly ineffective, shooting 4-15 and only scoring 14.  Chris Copeland was New York’s leading scorer with 15 in a game where they managed to only score 63 points… and only 28 in the second half.  Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and David Lee alone combined to score 70 in their 92-63 win.
