30. Orlando Magic (15-41, Last Week: 29): The Magic have lost five games in a row, with one of those losses coming at the hands of the league-worst Charlotte Bobcats.

29. Charlotte Bobcats (13-43, Last Week: 30): The Bobcats maintain the worst record in the league, and have lost three games in a row.

28. Phoenix Suns (18-39, Last Week: 28): The Suns have lost three games in a row.

27. Sacramento Kings (19-38, Last Week: 26): The Kings have struggled lately; losing five games in a row.

26. Philadelphia 76ers (22-32, Last Week: 22): Having lost five games in a row, the Sixers didn’t have much to be hopeful about as head coach Doug Collins had only discouraging thoughts on Andrew Bynum’s return this season.

25. Minnesota Timberwolves (20-33, Last Week: 26): The Wolves have lost seven of their last ten games, and things don’t appear to be working out in their favor as they have a three-game road trip coming up.

23. Detroit Pistons (22-36, Last Week: 23): The Pistons went 1-3 last week, with their only victory coming against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats.

22. New Orleans Hornets (20-37, Last Week: 21): The Hornets also went 1-3 last week.
