Mavericks Top Cavs To Extend Win Streak To Nine

Dallas, TX (Sports Network) – Another win for the Dallas Mavericks, another loss for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

So it goes.

Jason Terry had 23 points off the bench and the Mavericks beat Cleveland on Monday, 99-96, to earn their ninth straight win and push the Cavs’ NBA record to 25 straight losses.

Cleveland had a chance to tie, but like so many other times during a streak that has lasted nearly two months, couldn’t pull through.

The Cavs secured the rebound after Anthony Parker missed a long three-pointer in the final seconds, but simply passed the ball around the arc as time ran out, never getting off another shot.

They fell to 1-35 in their last 36 games and lost for the 26th straight time on the road.
