2012 NBA standings: Pistons last in Central Division

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Pistons are in last place in the Central Division and are already five games behind the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Detroit Pistons picked up their first win of the season on Wednesday, but still have a long way to go to get out of the Central Division cellar. Detroit is 5.0 games behind the division-leading Milwaukee Bucks (5-2) and 4.5 games behind the Chicago Bulls (5-3). The Indiana Pacers (3-6) are third in the division, while the Cleveland Cavaliers (2-6) are in fourth, still 1.5 games ahead of the Pistons.

Detroit has the second worst record in the Eastern Conference, ahead of only the Washington Wizards, who are the only winless team left in the NBA at 0-7.

The New York Knicks lead the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference as the only remaining undefeated team at 5-0. The Miami Heat lead the Southeast at 6-3. At the moment, eight teams in the East are .500 or better: the Knicks, Bucks, Heat, Nets (4-2), Bulls, Celtics (5-3), Bobcats (4-3), and 76ers (4-4).
