The Wizards have won two of their past four games, but unfortunately for them, they're still in last place in the Southeast at 2-14.

The Washington Wizards finally have some wins, but they're still well in last place in the Southeast Division with a 2-14 record. The Wizards beat the Miami Heat 105-101 on Tuesday night, but lost a bid to have consecutive wins on Friday night when they fell to the Atlanta Hawks 104-95. However, their 11 game losing streak to the start the season is over, and the team has been involved in a lot of close games recently, so there are some positive signs in Washington.

The Heat are in first in the Southeast at 12-5, closely followed by the Hawks at 11-5. The Charlotte Bobcats sit in third place at 7-11, and the Orlando Magic are right behind them at 7-12.

Elsewhere in the NBA, the New York Knicks have the best record in the Eastern Conference at 14-4. The Memphis Grizzlies have the league's best record at 14-3, but the Oklahoma City Thunder are right behind them at 16-4.
