Al Horford Helped Lead The No-Household-Names Atlanta Hawks To 19 Wins In A Row

It’s been streaky over at the NBA lately, good and bad.

The Atlanta Hawks just finished up a 19-game winning streak – the longest in that franchise’s 66-year history, going back all the way through the early days in Moline, Milwaukee and St. Louis to today in Atlanta.

The aged San Antonio Spurs (after all those great seasons) also notched 19-games in a row – just last year.

Those are not bad franchise records – and they are also tied for the sixth longest winning streaks in league history.

That all-time list is different than today’s. Here, we’re not ranking the greatest winning streaks ever, just every franchise’s personal record.

As for those recent bad streaks, we’ve already covered two big losing ones in 2014-15, including the longest to start a season (Philadelphia 76ers) and the longest for each team (New York Knicks).
