NEW YORK -- These aren't the same Brooklyn Nets, who the Wizards beat earlier this season at Verizon Center in overtime. They've won four of their last five games.
The fall of the Brooklyn Nets may have been greatly exaggerated, and look out because they're on a three-game winning streak entering Friday's game at the Detroit Pistons.
Although John Wall is fourth, the first returns of All-Star balloting look favorable for him.
After 18 games and a full month being complete, here is where the Wizards (9-9) stand in key categories as they stand at .500 for the first time since 2009.
