50 is the new 60

Considering the strength of the Western Conference this season and the work it took just to get into the playoffs, Avery Johnson attached a little extra significance to Thursday’s milestone win.

“I feel as good about the 50th win as I felt about the 60th win two years ago, especially with the stiffness of this league,” he said. “It’s a big accomplishment.”

The Mavs and Spurs are the only two teams in the league to notch at least 50 victories in each of the last eight years. The Mavs’ streak of eight straight postseasons is easily the longest run in franchise history.
