Having won three of their last four games, the Philadelphia 76ers moved back up the NBA standings and are currently seventh in the Eastern Conference.

At 7-5, Philadelphia is third in the Atlantic division behind the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets. The Knicks remain one of the hottest teams in the league, having won eight of their 10 games. The 76ers are just ahead of the Boston Celtics both in the division and the Eastern Conference. Boston is currently 6-6 and holding the No. 8 seed in the East.

While the Knicks and Miami Heat are atop the Eastern Conference, there is a three-way tie in the West. The 8-2 Memphis Grizzlies are tied with Oklahoma City and San Antonio, both of which are 9-3. There has been plenty of movement at the top of the standings, but the Washington Wizards remain at the bottom. At 0-10, the Wizards are the only team yet to win a game this season.
