Nets look to extend win streak vs. visiting Mavericks

The last time the Brooklyn Nets won nine in a row, it was part of a record-setting 14-game winning streak highlighted by Jason Kidd getting triple-doubles and connecting with Richard Jefferson and Vince Carter.

That 14-game run was way back in 2005-06 and the Nets will attempt to push the NBA's longest active streak to nine games on Saturday night when they host Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.

The Nets are trying to reach nine straight wins for the sixth time in franchise history. Their first nine-game run was the 1982-83 season, the next four were from 2002 to 2006 during the Kidd era, which Kyrie Irving grew up watching in New Jersey.
