Suns Match Spurs 17-Game Streak

By Daniel Strickland on January 30, 2007.

Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns made it 17 wins in a row by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday 115-100. That matches streaks by the Washington Capitols (1946-47), Boston Celtics (1959-60) and San Antonio Spurs (1995-96).

Of course 17 wins is a long way away from the 33-game streak that Wilt Chamberlain’s Los Angeles Lakers managed in 1971-72. But had it not been for some bad weather and two close losses, the Suns might have won 34 by now.

So can the Suns beat the Spurs in the playoffs? Steve Kerr is skeptical:

The Suns are a combined 0-6 against the Mavericks, Lakers, Spurs and Jazz. They’ll get their chance to change that this week with games against Utah and San Antonio as Phoenix tries to continue its fantastic stretch.

Incidentally, the Spurs are 4-5 against that same group, and 6-8 when you include the Rockets and T’wolves.
