The Atlantic Division

In case you haven't looked at the standings in the East lately.

Atlantic W L PCT GB CONF DIV HOME ROAD L 10 STREAK
New Jersey 5 8 0.385 0.0 4-2 1-0 3-3 2-5 3-7 L 5
Boston 5 8 0.385 0.0 4-6 1-1 3-5 2-3 5-5 W 1

And the rest of the East doesn't look much better (via truehoop).
After beating Atlanta last night, Orlando has the best record (10-4) in the conference. The Pistons and the Cavaliers (who lost last week to lowly Toronto) are right behind the Magic at 9-5. The entire Atlantic Division is below .500.

Entering yesterday, the West had only four teams with losing records. The East ? a combined 19-48 against the West ? had four teams with winning records.
The Mavs should be getting their first of ten wins over the Atlantic Wednesday night against Toronto.
