Dumpy, you'd think that a Nets/Cavs game would be on TV...since TV execs ride BRon's jock like no other...then again, it's the Nets so the chances of that happening aren't big.
Thats just a little info I found on the topic. I don't know about streaks between then and now, but 22 would have to be up there on the list I'd thinkDecember 12, 1971
Los Angeles defeated Atlanta 104-95 at the Forum for the Lakers’ 21st consecutive victory, breaking the NBA record of 20 straight wins, previously shared by the Washington Capitols (over two seasons) and Milwaukee Bucks. The Lakers went on to win 33 straight games, the longest winning streak in NBA history.
I wasn't born when the first 3 happened, but the last one was just cruel. Derek Fisher hit a miracle shot with .4 seconds on the clock after Duncan had all but sealed game 5. The Spurs could really have challenged the Pistons that year.ghoti said:In case anyone was curious...

Um, maybe that 22 game streak isn't such a great idea. :none:
