DALLAS -- The Boston Celtics aren't yet halfway to the NBA record for consecutive victories, a mark the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers still hold, but at 15 in a row, they are in rare territory.

Since 1946-47, there have only been 35 instances of a 15-game win streak or longer. And of all the legendary Celtics teams, this squad already holds the franchise's fifth-longest win streak. A victory Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks, who are an NBA-worst 3-14 overall and 2-8 at American Airlines Center, would tie the 1964-65 Boston team's 16-game win streak.

If the Celtics (15-2) get the win, they would climb closer to the 1959-60 team's 18-game win streak, and then comes the club mark of 19 in a row accomplished by the 2008-09 team.
