“Seven in a row is rare. The guys on our squad make me happy.” 

The Mavericks' longest streak since 2010-11 is seven wins. They also won seven straight in 2021-22. 

It feels nice, Irving remarked. We just want to continue. Definitely room for improvement.” 

They tied the Suns in the West at 33-23. By winning the season series two games to one, they secured the tiebreaker if the clubs finish with identical records.
