NBA Standings 2012: Chicago Bulls Hold League's Top Record

With just over 20 games remaining in the NBA season, the Chicago Bulls hold the league's top win-loss record at 34-9 on the season. Leading the Miami Heat by 1.5 games in the Eastern Conference standings, the Bulls are eyeing the top seed in the playoffs, which would give them homecourt advantage throughout.

While both the Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder are behind the Bulls in the standings, part of that is due to scheduling, as all three teams have only lost nine games this season. Chicago has played a few more games, though, and it's earned the advantage by winning them.

The Bulls are coming off an impressive 111-97 victory over the Utah Jazz despite being without Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Rip Hamilton and C.J. Watson. It's not easy to picture the Bulls playing with 12 healthy guys at this point in the year, but they continue to win regardless.
