NBA 2012 standings: Pistons 4th in Central Division

USA TODAY Sports

The Pistons snapped their six-game losing streak on Friday and remain fourth in the Central Division thanks to the struggles of the Cavaliers.

The Detroit Pistons ended a six-game losing streak on Friday, beating the woeful Washington Wizards 100-68. The victory moved the Pistons to 8-21 on the season, and they remain in fourth place in the Eastern Conference's Central Division thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers' own struggles.

The Pistons sit 2½ games ahead of the Cavs, as Cleveland has lost six straight games and hold a record of 5-23, second worst in the East ahead of just the Wizards. Detroit and Washington face off again on Saturday night.

While the Pistons and Cavs sit way back in the Central, there's currently a good battle going on at the top. The Chicago Bulls lead the division by one game over the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers with a record of 15-10. The Bucks sit at 14-11, and are percentage points ahead of the Pacers, who are 15-12. Those three teams currently hold the fourth through sixth spots in the East.
