Division titles mean nothing....records mean everything.
To win division title you need to have a good record. It's correlated.
And it's not so much about the homecourt,it's about having a better matchup in the 1st round.
East is so close this year,we might end up with the same (or almost the same) number of wins as the Nets and they might end up playing the Bucks while we would have to play against the Bulls. It is certainly possible.
