2012-13 NBA standings: 76ers tied for 3rd in Atlantic Division

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers are currently third place in the Atlantic Division, tied with the Boston Celtics. How does the rest of the division look after Wednesday's games?

After Tuesday's loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers find themselves tied for third in the Atlantic Division with the Boston Celtics at 10-8. Both teams start a home-and-home series on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Both teams are looking up at the New York Knicks, who are 13-4 after their buzzer-beating victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday, 100-98. The Knicks next travel to play the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on Thursday. Both the Sixers and the Celtics are 3.5 games behind the Knicks.

The Brooklyn Nets are second in the division after dropping their last two games, the same number of games that they are back of the Knicks. They have a chance to get back on track Friday as they host the Golden State Warriors at the Barclays Center.

The Toronto Raptors bring up the rear in the division at 4-15, 10 games back of the Knicks after Wednesday's 107-100 loss to the Sacramento Kings. Their next game will be on the road Friday against the Utah Jazz at the EnergySolutions Arena.
