2012 NBA standings: Cavaliers at the bottom of Central Division

The Cleveland Cavaliers are at the very bottom of the Central Division standings.

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers are not having a good season, to put it gently. They're 4-15, with Anderson Varejao acting as pretty much the only bright spot. They've lost all four games they've played within the Central Division, including their lone outing against the Detroit Pistons, the team just above them in the standings.

Detroit is 6-14, and contributed to the Cavs' present three-game losing streak. The Pistons actually have a winning record within the conference at 4-3. Just above them are the Milwaukee Bucks, who sport an 8-9 record with a 3-1 mark within the division. They've lost their last two games, however.

The Indiana Pacers have a winning record, at 10-9, and they are in second place in the division. They've won their last two games, but are 1-1 within the division. On top is the Chicago Bulls, who are 9-8 without star player Derrick Rose. The Pacers have one more win, but the Bulls have one less loss, and that's what counts at this point.
