The Western Conference standings look normal in some places and are pretty much varied in others. The San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks are perched atop the Southwest as usual. However in the Northwest, the Oklahoma City Thunder trail the Minnesota Timberwolves by a game, while Portland, Denver, and Utah aren't too far behind. However, the strangest results may be coming in the Pacific Division, where the results seem to be reversed based on how teams have historically performed.

The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers are situated at 3-2 after both achieved victory yesterday over the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs respectively, and both are currently tied in third place. The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns are a step behind at 2-3, but both did get wins yesterday against the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Bobcats respectively. The Los Angeles Lakers are shockingly in last place in the Pacific Division at 1-4 after falling to the Utah Jazz.
