2012 NBA Standings: Warriors and Kings Find Themselves At Bottom Of Pacific Conference Barrel

It's been an interesting beginning of the shortened 2012 season for both the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings thus far, with a rocky start to one head coach's career while the end of another's have already taken place. Neither team has jumped out of the gate just yet, finding themselves bringing up the rear in the Pacific Conference at the moment.

The Warriors find themselves at 2-6 on the year after losing their last five straight contests in a row, including a heartbreaking one-point loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night as Mark Jackson continues his growing pains as an NBA coach, while the Sacramento Kings are at 3-6 after falling to the visiting Orlando Magic Sunday evening 104-97 as former W's head coach Keith Smart gets a second-chance with Paul Westphal's departure.

The road ahead for both squads is going to be a bumpy one as the Warriors get set to host the Miami Heat on Tuesday followed by the Magic on Thursday, then a four-game roadie to the East Coast, while the Kings head out on a five game road trip of their own including a stop with the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Hopefully they can get ome much needed wins in the upcoming week.
