NBA Standings 2012: Celtics Hold Seven Seed, Thanks To Three Game Win Streak

Following a much needed halfway break last weekend, the Boston Celtics began the second half of the NBA season better than most predicted, as they took out the Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks and New Jersey Nets to get above .500 and give them a three game win streak.

For the Celtics (18-17), there efforts were to get them not only above .500, but it also put them as the current seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. On Sunday, they will be tested against the current eighth seeded New York Knicks, whom the C's passed earlier this week.

To see who holds the current top spot in both conferences, check out the full NBA standings in both the East and the West, after the jump.
