Washington Wizards fans can't be too pleased with where their team is through the first 20 games of the 2012-13 NBA season. Washington finds itself with a 3-17 record -- the worst mark in the NBA so far this season.

Not surprisingly, the Miami Heat find themselves atop the Southeast division. The Heat, however, are tied for first with the surprising Atlanta Hawks. Both Miami and Atlanta are 14-6 -- with an 11-game lead over the last-place Wizards.

The Orlando Magic are in third place, with a 9-13 record. Orlando hasn't played well in its first year without superstar Dwight Howard.

Charlotte started the season 7-5, but has since lost 10 straight games, and now the Bobcats are in fourth place in the Southeast division, with a 7-15 mark -- three games ahead of Washington.

The New York Knicks surprisingly own the Eastern Conference's top record, as they are 17-5 through their first 22 games -- including two wins over the Heat.
