NBA standings 2012: Warriors fifth in the Western Conference

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors are currently in fifth place in the Western Conference standings while the Sacramento Kings are off to a tough start and sit second to last. Memphis, Oklahoma City and San Antonio are the class of the conference thus far.

The Golden State Warriors improved to 12-7 with a victory on Friday and remained in fifth place in the Western Conference standings. The Warriors are just a half-game behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the fourth spot.

Memphis (14-3) is still atop the conference, but the Grizzlies' lead is just half a game over the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs who are both 16-4 on the season.

The Warriors have a little bit of room behind them with the Utah Jazz holding the sixth spot at 11-10. The Denver Nuggets (10-10) and Minnesota Timberwolves (9-9) are clinging on to the final two future playoff positions ahead of the 9-9 Houston Rockets who are currently ninth in the West.

Despite a victory on Friday, the Sacramento Kings still have the second-worst record in the Western Conference. At 6-12, the Kings are 14th in the West, just ahead of the New Orleans Hornets.
