NBA standings 2012: Suns still in basement despite recent success

Phoenix has won two straight, but they've got a lot of ground to make up before they enter the top half of the Western Conference standings.

The Phoenix Suns continue to struggle in the NBA standings, now sitting second from the bottom of the Pacific Division. At 9-15, only the Sacramento Kings have a worse record. Suns fans might take heart in the fact that rivals the Lakers are not faring much better, a game ahead of Phoenix at 10-14. Both teams are well behind the Clippers, who lead the division at 16-6. Recent results may bolster the hopes of Suns fans. Phoenix has won two in a row over strong teams, the Utah Jazz and the Memphis Grizzlies.

Elsewhere in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder have build a 6.5 game lead in the Northwest and the San Antonio Spurs hold a two game lead over the Grizzlies in the Southwest.

In the Eastern conference the New York Knicks are tops in the Atlantic, the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls are tied for first in the Central, and the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks are locked together at the top of the Southeast.
