2012 NBA standings: Wizards remain in last place despite 1st win

A look at how the Washington Wizards size up against the rest of the NBA.

Rob Carr

The Washington Wizards remain in last place in the Southeast division with an overall record of 1-12.

Washington managed to register their first victory of the 2012-13 season on Wednesday night when the team defeated the Portland Trail Blazers by a final score of 84-82 at Verizon Center. The victory ended a 12-game losing streak that included three loses against division rivals and a total of nine defeats at the hands of Eastern Conference foes.

The Wizards will have a difficult time tying together wins as their next two opponents are the New York Knicks (10-4) and Miami Heat (10-3), who are both 10-game winners this season.

Washington trails Miami by nine games for first place in the Southeast division. The Heat are currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak but will have to face the San Antonio Spurs and Brooklyn Nets before traveling to Washington.

The Atlanta Hawks (9-4) currently trail Miami by one game in the Southeast largely due to the six-game winning streak the team is currently on. The Charlotte Bobcats (7-7) hold the No. 3 spot in the division, followed by the Orlando Magic (5-9) at No. 4.
