21 straight doesn't matter

The Mavs have won 21 straight over the Hornets, the longest winning streak in any of the four major sports. Yes, I’m including the NHL. Though us reporter types like to throw out such stats, those actually involved in the streaks don’t put much stock in them.

So we’re told.

“We haven’t played them in the regular season this year,” Avery Johnson said minutes ago. “That [streak] doesn’t mean anything. It’s 0-0 right now. That’s for you guys to talk about. They’re a much better team than they were in the past.”

Dallas enters the game 11-5. New Orleans is a half-game back in the Southwest Division at 11-6.
