NBA Standings: A Look At The Central Division, 11/17/10

Four teams from the NBA Central Division were in action last night with the division going 2-2 in their contests.  The Cavaliers, of course, beat the Philadelphia 76ers 101-93 to stop a two-game losing streak.  It put the Cavs at 5-5 on the season.

The Bulls beat the Rockets 95-92 to win their 4th straight game.  Chicago is really starting to play well despite not having Carlos Boozer and the pre-season pick to win the Central Division has laid claim to first place.

Milwaukee was out-gunned at home by Kobe Bryant and the Lakers 118-107.  The Win stopped a 2-game losing streak for the Lakers as they improved to 9-2 on the season. 

Lastly, Atlanta overwhelmed Indiana in the 2nd Half to beat the Pacers 102-92.
