With a month and a half of the NBA season in the books, the Miami Heat have a firm hold atop the Southeast Division standings. While the Heat may have dropped a division game this past week in Orlando, they still have a two-game lead over the Atlanta Hawks heading into their Sunday night matchup at Philips Arena. After Atlanta is Orlando, which is 3.5 games back of the Heat.
Miami is still officially two games back of the Chicago Bulls, who were in a fight with the Boston Celtics on Sunday afternoon. They are just one back in the loss column, however, as they chase down the team who had the best record in the league last year. Only Chicago and Oklahoma City have a better record than the Heat.
