2012 NBA standings: Suns still stuck toward the bottom

USA TODAY Sports

The Phoenix Suns are still back in the pack after winning four games in a row.

A four-game winning streak hasn't budged the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference standings, but it has kept them on pace with a slew of mediocre teams.

At 11-15, Phoenix is third-to-last in the Western Conference yet well above the Sacramento Kings (8-17) and New Orleans Hornets (5-20).

The Suns are a game behind the Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division. The Los Angeles Clippers lead the Pacific with a 19-6 start to the year, which is two games behind the NBA's best team record-wise, the Oklahoma City Thunder. The surprising Golden State Warriors are in fifth place in the conference at 17-9.

Phoenix finds itself stuck at the bottom of the conference with five teams holding records that are a single win or loss away from being .500. Minnesota and Houston -- the seventh and eighth seeds at this point -- are hovering around .500 records with Utah, Dallas and Portland.
