NBA Standings 2012: Heat Standings Update

The Miami Heat enter tonight's game against the Orlando Magic at the American Airlines Arena with a record of 32-11. Despite setbacks this past week against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday and Chicago Bulls the following evening, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and the rest of the Heat still have a very impressive record at this point in the season.

With 23 regular season games left to play for the Heat, they currently hold a comfortable four game lead over the Orlando Magic (29-16) in the Eastern Conference's Southeast Division. Miami is neck and neck with Chicago for the top spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings, trailing the Bulls by only three games. The Heat have two games left this year with the Bulls (April 12 and April 19), so their is still time for them to gain ground and attain home court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. Miami also has the third best record in the entire league at the moment, behind only Chicago and the Oklahoma City Thunder (33-11).
