USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers and the Thunder stand at the top of the standings, but the Spurs aren't far behind.

The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, and that win allowed them to hold on to the top spot in the Western Conference. They're tied there with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the San Antonio Spurs are .5 games behind those two teams. The Lakers are three spots out of the top half of the conference.

The Clippers are in the driver's seat in the Pacific Division, three games up on the Golden State Warriors and a full ten up on the Lakers. The Warriors will have a chance to make up some ground when they play the Clippers twice in January, starting Saturday night. Complete Western Conference standings are below.

In the Eastern Conference, the New York Knicks have a 4.5 game lead over the Brooklyn Nets in the Atlantic Division, in the Central the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers are tied for the lead, and in the Southeast the Miami Heat have a two game lead over the Atlanta Falcons.
