NBA Standings 2012: Los Angeles Clippers Strengthen Pacific Division Lead

The Los Angeles Clippers got two gigantic road monkeys off their back in the last week, and won four of five games to maintain supremacy in the Pacific Division. The Clippers snapped a nine-game losing streak in Denver and ended a 16-game skid in Utah, and in between beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, the team with the best record in the NBA.

The Clippers hold a game and a half lead over the Los Angeles Lakers, as the two teams have established themselves as the only two teams in the division with any playoff aspirations.
