View Full Version : Do Clips Surpass Rockets 07-08 Win Streak?

12-26-2012, 12:37 PM
Rockets ran off 22 straight W's in 07-08. Yao Ming had a season ending injury after the 12th win and they rallied off 10 more after that before getting blown out by the eventual champion Celtics (beat the eventual WC champion Lakers for the 22nd W). They ended up losing to Utah in round 1 after winning 55 games.

71-72 Lakers own the record with 33 straight W's.

Clips need 9 more games to surpass Rockets.

No. The C's might beat em. If the C's don't, then I see the Lakers beating them.

yao ming, what a tragedy he was injured. :(

I don't think so.

If they don't lose @ Utah (back-to-back on friday) , they'll probably lose one or two of those first four in January, which take place over 5 days, not easy.

If they don't lose to Boston then I could see them losing in Utah. Their a really good team at home.

12-26-2012, 01:02 PM
I predict @jazz they'll lose

12-26-2012, 01:07 PM
It's not too daunting of a schedule, but odds are they don't.

Wouldn't mind if they did though. A fun team.

12-26-2012, 01:24 PM
I personally think @Utah is when they lose as well.

12-26-2012, 01:29 PM
Nah they will have an off night in there somewhere.

They lose to Boston, Utah, and LA

12-26-2012, 01:38 PM
They'll randomly lose to a team they should beat, I think.

12-26-2012, 01:38 PM
I think not.

12-26-2012, 01:39 PM
Dont think so.

In Denver. Book it

12-26-2012, 02:20 PM
Naw they won't. I predict them to lose one of the next two. People don't seem to realize how hard and incredible it is to win this many in a row let alone 8+ more.

@ Nuggets
@ Warriors

2 tough games. They should be able to win all those home games. More likely if one of these are the 2nd of a back to back.

12-26-2012, 07:21 PM
As a Clippers fan I don't think they will do it. It's very possible but I don't expect them to win 8 more. I can see them losing any game now.

12-26-2012, 07:25 PM
I think they'll lose @utah, a pretty tough place to play.

If not I hope my Lakers will beat them

12-26-2012, 07:39 PM
