2012-13 NBA standings: Wizards still last in Southeast Division

USA TODAY Sports

Despite Tuesday's win against the Miami Heat, the Washington Wizards are still last in the Southeast Division, 9.5 games back of the Heat.

The Washington Wizards may have defeated the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, but didn't improve their position in the Southeast Division by much if at all. The Wizards are currently in last place, 9.5 games back of the Miami Heat in the division. The Wizards will have a chance to gain some ground this weekend as they travel to play the Atlanta Hawks on Friday and return to Verizon Center to play the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

The Heat still lead the division with a 12-4 record entering a nationally televised game against the New York Knicks on Thursday night, with tip off scheduled for 8 p.m. on TNT. The Hawks are 1.5 games back of the Heat with a 10-5 record entering Friday's game with the Wizards.

The Charlotte Bobcats have dropped five in a row to put their record at 7-10, 5.5 games back of the Heat in the division as they enter Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. In fourth place is the Orlando Magic at 7-11, six games back of the Heat entering Friday's game on the road against the Sacramento Kings.
