2012 NBA Standings: Hawks just a game back in East standings

USA TODAY Sports

A four-game winning streak has the Atlanta Hawks within a game of first-place in the Eastern Conference.

The Atlanta Hawks are riding a four-game winning streak and have pulled to within a game of first-place in the Eastern Conference. At 20-8 Miami leads the conference by percentage points of the New York Knicks who are 21-9. Atlanta is a game back in third place at 19-9 and enjoying the longest current winning streak in the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee and Chicago are tied for fourth place with the Pacers slipping to the sixth spot after Saturday's loss to the Hawks. Brooklyn has won two straight since giving Avery Johnson his walking papers and are in seventh place in the conference. Boston is a game in front of Philadelphia for the eighth spot in the standings with a 14-15 record.

Orlando is sliding quickly as their losing streak reached five games but they will have to go a long ways to catch the funk that Charlotte is currently in. The Bobcats have gone winless again this week and their losing streak is now up to 18 games.
