NBA Standings 2012: Atlanta Keeping Pace With Miami In Southeast Division

After defeating the Detroit Pistons on Friday night, Atlanta improved to 14-6 on the season and are just a half game behind the Miami Heat for first-place in the NBA's Southeast Division. Even more impressive is the Hawks 7-2 record without the injured Al Horford who went down earlier this season with a torn pectoral muscle and is expected to miss the rest of the regular season.

The Orlando Magic have lost two straight and have fallen a game behind the Hawks in the division. The Charlotte Bobcats season continues to spiral as they have lost eight games in a row and have fallen to 3-18.
