NBA 2012 standings: Suns climbing with four straight wins

Christian Petersen

The Phoenix Suns have won their past four games to improve to 11-15, but are still in 13th in the Western Conference. Last season's NBA finalists, Oklahoma City and Miami, currently lead the two conferences.

Despite all of their early-season struggles, the Phoenix Suns have won their last four games to get within shouting distance of a .500 record. At 11-15 the Suns are in 13th place in the Western Conference standings, just a half game behind the Dallas Mavericks and one game behind the struggling Los Angeles Lakers.

The Oklahoma City Thunder lead the Western Conference with a 21-5 record, but the Los Angeles Clippers are hot on their heals, just a game behind.

The Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs are chasing just behind the leaders, both teams two games back of the Thunder. The rising Golden State Warriors are in fifth place with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets holding onto the final three prospective playoff spots. Here are the full Western Conference standings:
