NBA standings 2012: Cavaliers sitting in last place in the Central Division

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Despite winning two of their last three games, the Cleveland Cavaliers remain in last place in the NBA's Central Division standings. Indiana currently leads the division with a 17-12 record.

Even with two wins in their last three games, the Cleveland Cavaliers still find themselves in last place in the NBA's Central Division standings. The Cavaliers' 102-94 loss to Atlanta on Friday night dropped them to 7-24 overall on the season.

And with the loss, it also put them a game further behind division-leading Indiana, which beat Phoenix at home on Friday night. The Pacers are 17-12 overall and in first place in the Central, while Milwaukee and Chicago are each a game back, with both sporting 15-12 records. Detroit is in fourth place after their stunning 109-99 victory over the Heat on Friday evening, with the Cavaliers 3.5 games behind the Pistons and 11 games off the top spot in the Central Division.

As things stand, the Cavaliers currently have the third worst overall record in the NBA.

Only the Washington Wizards (4-23) and New Orleans (6-23) are off to worse starts than Cleveland is.
