NBA Standings 2012: Nuggets get back to .500, in second in the Northwest

Greg Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Nuggets have won two straight games to get back to .500 on the season. Their 6-6 record puts them tied for second in the Northwest Division behind the Thunder.

The Denver Nuggets have won their past two games, which got them back to .500 at 6-6. That record is good enough for a tie for second place in the Northwest Division with the Utah Jazz. The Oklahoma City Thunder are three games ahead of them at 9-3.

The Thunder, Miami Heat, and San Antonio Spurs are all tied for the league lead with nine wins, but the New York Knicks and Memphis Grizzlies are tied for the lead in winning percentage (.800) with 8-2 records. Memphis, Oklahoma City, Miami, and New York are all 8-2 over the last 10 games.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards are still searching for their first win of the season. They're 0-10, and are already eight games back of the Heat. Every division has a team in last place with three or fewer wins except for the Northwest, where the 5-6 Portland Trail Blazers occupy the final position. Only 3.5 games separate all five times in the Northwest.
