(AP) — The Brooklyn Nets still don’t know who they’ll play in the first round of the playoffs, but they hope to be fully rested and healthy once it starts.

With the Eastern Conference’s fourth seed locked up, the Nets will go for their first season sweep of the Detroit Pistons in franchise history and sixth win in seven games overall Wednesday night in Brooklyn.

Even with starters Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Reggie Evans and Joe Johnson getting the night off, the Nets (48-33) rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat Washington 106-101 on Monday.

Andray Blatche had 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Kris Humphries scored a season-high 20 with nine boards as part of the Nets’ makeshift lineup. Both big men started for the first time since December.
