2013 NBA standings: Warriors surging, Kings sneak out of last place

USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors have pulled to within 2.5 games of the Clippers in the Pacific Division standings, while the Kings have leapfrogged the Suns and snuck out of last place.

Following a huge win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors have pulled to within 2.5 games of first place in the Pacific Division.

The 115-94 over the Clippers was the Warriors (22-10) fourth consecutive victory, and in addition to helping them close the gap on the Clippers in the Pacific, it helped the team pull to within .002 percentage points of the Memphis Grizzlies (20-9) and No. 4 spot in the Western Conference standings. The Warriors can pull closer to the Clippers when the teams square off again on Saturday night at Staples Center.

The Sacramento Kings (12-20) have snuck out of the Pacific Division cellar for the time being, thanks to a brutal six-game skid by the Phoenix Suns (12-21). Sacramento holds a half-game lead over the Suns for fourth place, and trail the inconsistent Los Angeles Lakers (15-16) by 3.5 games heading into this weekend's slate of games.
