2012 NBA standings: Thunder start rolling to keep pace in Western Conference

US PRESSWIRE

Oklahoma City continues rising to the top of the standings in the Western Conference with a strong finish to the first month of the season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder (13-4) closed out the month of November on a roll by winning four consecutive games and seven of their last eight to seize control atop the NBA's Northwest Division.

The Thunder opened up a four-game lead over the second-place Utah Jazz while also keeping pace with the leaders in the Western Conference. The Memphis Grizzlies are also in the midst of a four game winning streak and maintain their half game lead in the Western Conference over the Thunder and San Antonio Spurs.

The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers make up the next tier of teams in the West, with both teams 3.5 games behind Memphis followed by the Jazz in sixth place. A glut of five teams within one game of each other makes up the next group of teams, led by the Los Angeles Lakers in seventh place, five games behind Memphis.

The Miami Heat have taken over the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings after winning five consecutive games. The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks follow behind just a half game behind the Heat.
