The fact that the Clippers won 17 games in a row is a wonder in itself. Historically, they’ve probably been the worst team in League history and it’s great that they’re finally winning. Their 17 game win-streak came to a hault last night in Denver. Nothing lasts forever.
During an undefeated five-week run by the Los Angeles Clippers, the Denver Nuggets were just another team they beat along the way. The second time around, the Nuggets were the team that ground the Clippers’ streak to a halt.
Danilo Gallinari led six Nuggets players in double figures with 17 points and Denver stopped the Clippers’ franchise- record winning streak at 17 games with a 92-78 victory Tuesday night.
The Clippers’ streak was the longest in the NBA since the Boston Celtics won 19 in a row from Nov. 15-Dec. 23, 2008.
