Streaks against particular opponents

Streaks against particular opponents

Postby maltomek46 » Wed Jan 19, 2011 3:42 pm

San Antonio Spurs have currently longest active winning streaks against particular opponents both at home (25 vs. Golden State Warrios) and overall (16 vs. Minnesota Timbervolves). I was curious what are the NBA records in such categories. I did a little research and here are the longest streaks which I've found:

LONGEST WINNING STREAK AGAINST PARTICULAR OPPONENT, HOME
43 - Lakers against Kings franchise, 1975-92
29 - Trail Blazers against Clippers franchise, 1981-90
27 - Lakers against Clippers franchise, 1981-91
27 - Spurs against Warriors, 1997-recent

LONGEST WINNING STREAK AGAINST PARTICULAR OPPONENT, ROAD
12 - Lakers against Kings franchise, 1983-88
11 - Boston against Braves, 1970-74

LONGEST WINNING STREAK AGAINST PARTICULAR OPPONENT, OVERALL
24 - Lakers against Kings franchise, 1983-88
22 - Boston against Braves, 1970-74

I'm sure that 43 streak is the record in its category but for others two I'm not really sure. Any corrections are more than welcome.

The Lakers streaks against the Kings include the infamous 1987 game wherein LA led by 29-0 & 40-4.

In today's edition of Elias says one can find the first four longest winning streak against particular opponents at home, so I can update my lists in the first message in that topic.

That Celtics' home streak against Buffalo included two games in Providence which were actually considered neutral site games.

I found another 20+ game winning streak - The Celtics beat the Braves 22 straight times overall from 30Nov70 to 22Feb74.

Thanks Robert! One interesting note: Houston won 15 games in the row against Golden State Warriors on the road, but in the same time (1996-2003) Rockets wasn't able to win more than 3 consecutive games against that opponent at home!

The Suns beat the Bucks for the 24th time here in Phoenix tonight, so you can add them to the home game list.
