The Mavs won their 13th straight game last night, beating the Nets 96 – 87. (For those of you who haven’t watched ESPN at all the past week, this represents a tie for longest winning streak in the NBA this season).
This should come as much of a relief as a celebration, as the Nets are the worst team in the league. Losing last night would have been bad, bad news. But after falling behind early (39 points in 1st half), Kidd, Butler, Marion, Beaubois, and Haywood helped pick up the slack for an ice-cold Dirk.
