NBA Standings 2012: Boston falls behind in standings

The Celtics have lost their last two games, but still have time to make up ground as the season is young.

Jared Wickerham

The Boston Celtics have lost two straight games to fall to 6-6 on the year, but they aren't far behind the division and conference leaders with plenty of time remaining in the season. Boston is two games behind the New York Knicks for the top of the Atlantic and East.

The Heat and Bucks are the other division leaders in the East. Miami is just percentage points behind the Knicks for the conference lead, while the Bucks are among a four-way tie of teams at 6-4.

Memphis is tied with the Knicks for the best record in the NBA and leads the Western Conference by percentage points over Oklahoma City and San Antonio. They are followed closely by the Clippers.

One team remains winless on the year, the Wizards. Washington has dropped their first 10 games. No other team has less than two wins thus far.
