2012 NBA standings: Cavaliers fall to last place in Central

The Cleveland Cavaliers, without Kyrie Irving for the next month, have fallen to last place in the Central Division.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Cavaliers have not had a good run recently. The team has lost star point guard Kyrie Irving for the next month with a hairline fracture in his left hand, and have gone into a tailspin without his presence on the court. The Cavs have lost four in a row, and nine of their last 10 games, and have slipped into last place in the Central Division.

The Milwaukee Bucks currently sit in first place in the division, a half game ahead of the Chicago Bulls and one game ahead of the Indiana Pacers. The Detroit Pistons have steadied themselves after an 0-8 start, and are now 3.5 games behind the Bucks, and the Cavs sit in last, five games behind.

The Cavs have a tough back-to-back coming up this weekend. They travel to Atlanta on Friday, Nov. 30th, to take on the Hawks, then come home to face the Portland Trail Blazers the next night.
