Last time each NBA team had a 10-game winning streak


Last Thursday (Jan. 28)  the Toronto Raptors defeated the New York Knicks 103-93 for their 10th straight victory of the season. It was the first time in franchise history that the Raptors had ever won 10 or more games in a row. They have since won their 11th straight and go for #12 tonight.

Prior to winning their 10th consecutive game, the Raptors were one of three NBA teams that had never won 10 in a row. The other two teams that have never won 10 consecutive games? The Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards.

Let’s take a look at the last time each NBA franchise won 10 games in a row. Of those teams that have won 10 straight in their history, the Milwaukee Bucks have the current longest drought… they have not won 10 consecutive games since they did it in 1986. (Note: The year listed below is the year when the streak ended)
