Better than our record shows? Well, lately we have been.

On the whole of the season, as far as total points scored vs total points allowed, we have been one of the worst teams in the league.  However, we are the only team in this group that is actually on an upward trend.  I have included all of the worst teams in each division (except I picked 2 from Pacific and 0 from Southwest, because they are way better than our division is).  I have also included Orlando, just to show a team trending the other way lately, putting our situation in perspective a bit.

So as you can see, we really shot ourselves in the foot with our no-show against Golden State in October, and we were pretty below-average (in this sample) in November.  However, so far in this first half of December, we've been by far the best team of these weaker teams, and even better than the slumping Orlando.  I mean, we still suck because we lose more than we win, but we're not completely hopeless.  

Make what you will of the rest of the information, keeping in mind that +/- as a statistic can be misleading since blowouts can either expand into ridiculousness (like that Golden State game) or it can get pulled into single digits, simply because Team 1's C-squad is better than Team 2's C-squad.
