2006–07 New Jersey Nets season

The 2006–07 New Jersey Nets season was the team's 40th in the NBA. They began the season hoping to improve upon their 49–33 output from the previous season. However, they came eight wins shy of tying it, finishing 41–41.[1] In the playoffs, the Nets upset Vince Carter's former team, the Toronto Raptors in the first round but could not defeat the eventual Eastern Conference champion, the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the next round. The Nets remain the last team with a 0.500 record to win a playoff series.
