NBA 2012 standings: Celtics struggling at .500

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

After going 4-6 in their last 10 games, the Boston Celtics find themselves with a 13-13 record -- and in third place in the Atlantic Division.

Though the NBA season is only 26 games old for the Boston Celtics, it's safe to say that Doc Rivers' team is struggling so far. The Celtics sit at just 13-13 through their first 26 games, and are hanging around the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference -- and could be in danger of missing the playoffs this coming spring.

Boston has gone just 4-6 in its last 10 games, and has dropped four of its last five contests, losing to Houston, San Antonio, Chicago and Milwaukee in that span.

Still, if the season ended today, Boston would be a playoff team. The Celtics have plenty of time to move up the Eastern Conference standings, and are just one and a half games behind the Milwaukee Bucks for the fifth seed.

In the Atlantic Division, the Celtics find themselves six games behind the first-place New York Knicks -- the same Knicks that have defeated the Miami Heat twice this season. Boston also trails Brooklyn by half a game for second place in the Atlantic division.
