Despite back-to-back wins for the first time this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers remain in last place in the Central Division.
The Cleveland Cavaliers remain in last place in the Central Division despite winning back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Cavs managed victories over the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards without Anderson Varejao, who has missed the last four games with a knee injury. Still, the two victories only moved Cleveland's record up to 7-23, 10 games behind the division-leading Indiana Pacers (16-12).
The Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks are only a half-game behind the Pacers and 9.5 games ahead of the Cavs at 15-12. The Detroit Pistons are 1.5 games ahead of Cleveland (and 8.5 games behind Indiana) at 9-22.
Cleveland still remains comfortably in front of the Wizards, who at 3-23 have the worst record in the league. The Charlotte Bobcats (7-21) have lost 16 straight, but still have a better record than the Cavs.
