The 2014 NBA Playoffs haven't started yet, but the hijinks have already tipped off. In the east, the third-seeded Toronto Raptors will meet the sixth-seeded Brooklyn Nets, and whoever manages nets.com is pulling for the Raptors.

Head to "celtics.com", "lakers.com" or "timberwolves.com" and you'll wind up at the respective team's official NBA website. But that's not the case with "nets.com," as that URL, as of 4 p.m. EST, redirects you to the Nets' playoff opponent, the Toronto Raptors.

This has happened before, once with the Knicks and also when Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded from the Celtics' to Brooklyn.

Oh, if you want to check in on the Nets, head to brooklynnets.com.
