2013 NBA standings: Suns plummet to Pacific Division cellar

USA TODAY Sports

The mercurial Suns' six-game losing streak buried them at the bottom of the Pacific Division standings.

Calling the Phoenix Suns "streaky" would be an understatement.

Since Nov. 27, Alvin Gentry's squad has gone on three considerable streaks. The first, from Nov. 28 to Dec. 8, was a seven-game skid that included losses to the struggling Toronto Raptors and Detroit Pistons. The second, a prosperous streak from Dec. 12 to Dec. 19, featured four-straight wins, including an upset of the Memphis Grizzlies. And the third, a six-game losing streak, dumped the Suns into last place in the Pacific Division.

The Suns (12-21) trail the Sacramento Kings (12-20) by half a game for fourth place in the division, following their 95-89 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Clippers (25-8) hold the top spot in the Pacific, with a 2.5-game lead over the surprising Golden State Warriors (22-10), while the Los Angeles Lakers are alone in third place with a 15-16 record.

Phoenix currently holds the second-worst record in the Western Conference standings, with a 4.5-game lead over the New Orleans Hornets (7-25).
