Default The Bucks are the Reason Dallas won the Championship: Proof Inside!

ESPN Wrriten on December 14th, 2010

Quote:
Armed with information from the tireless folks at the Elias Sports Bureau, Scott Randall of ESPN Stats and Research followed the dots after the Milwaukee Bucks ended the Dallas Mavericks' 12-game win streak Monday night and found a pot of gold that might interest the Mavs.

Monday was the fifth time in team history that the Bucks have ended a winning streak of at least 12 games. The most famous instance was when Milwaukee ended the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA-record 33-game winning streak on Jan. 9, 1972. The Bucks also ended 12-plus game streaks by the Celtics (1973 -12), 76ers (1983 - 14) and Spurs (2007 - 13).


What do all four teams have in common?

They all went on to win the NBA title that same season.

Here's a look at the Bucks' streak-busters and the teams they sent on to raise a championship banner:

January 9, 1972 - Beat Lakers, 120-104

In January of 1972 the Bucks beat Los Angeles 120-104 to snap the Lakers NBA-record 33-game winning streak. The Lakers would still go on to win the NBA title...

November 30, 1973 - Beat Celtics, 117-93

Two seasons later the Bucks ended another streak by the eventual NBA champions... This time it was a 12-game streak by the Celtics.

January 23, 1983 - Beat 76ers, 107-96

It happened again in 1983 when the Bucks ended the 76ers' 14-game streak... the same season Julius Erving and Philly won their first NBA title since 1967.

March 15, 2007 - Beat Spurs, 101-90

And then in 2007 Milwaukee ended the Spurs 13-game streak. Get this... The Spurs would go on the win the title...

December 12, 2010 - Beat Mavericks, 103-99

So the Mavs should be happy the Bucks ended their 12-game streak last night... Based on stone-cold history, it now assures them of winning the NBA title this season.

Now, about that parade route...

It also has nothing to do with the fact that the Bucks also gave the Mavs Dirk for Traylor (RIP).

That's what I imagined this thread to be about. It took a turn for the more interesting.
