NBA 2012 standings: Slumping Cavaliers remain last in Central Division

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers have lost six straight games and remain at the bottom of the Central Division.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost six straight games and remain in the cellar of the Eastern Conference's Central Division with an abysmal record of 5-23. The Cavs are 11½ games behind the Chicago Bulls in the division and 2½ behind the Detroit Pistons for fourth place.

The Cavs have not won since beating the Los Angeles Lakers 100-94 back on Dec. 11 in Kyrie Irving's return to the floor. During that span, they have lost three divisional games, including two to the Indiana Pacers, who sit one game behind the Bulls at 15-12. Cleveland has also lost to the Milwaukee Bucks during the six-game skid, and the Bucks are currently 14-11, one game behind Chicago. The Cavs and Bucks will square off again on Saturday night.

The fourth place Pistons are 8-21 after a 100-68 shellacking of the Washington Wizards, who are even worse than the Cavs with a record of 3-21.
