The Golden State Warriors continue to keep pace in the Western Conference and Pacific Division. They're now 22-10 on the season and they've won seven of their past 10 games.

In the Pacific Division, the W's trail only the Los Angeles Clippers by three games for the top spot in the standings. Golden State holds a seven-game lead over the slumping Lakers for second place. As for the Sacramento Kings, their improved play in recent weeks has moved them into fourth place with a 13-20 record.

The Oklahoma City Thunder currently posses the top record in the West with a 25-7 mark. The Clippers are just one game back of that at 24-8, while the Spurs are 24-9. It appears the top three seeds in the conference are up for grabs and it will be interesting to see how healthy they can all stay during the second half of the year.

In the East, Miami currently sits at 22-9 and holds a one-half game lead over the Knicks for the league's best record.

Here is a full look at the Western Conference as of Saturday, Jan. 5.
