By the numbers: Wizards' streak of scoring 100+ points snapped by Jazz

By the numbers: Wizards' streak of scoring 100+ points snapped by Jazz

The Wizards' streak of scoring 100 points or more was snapped on Sunday night, fittingly by a Utah Jazz team that holds opponents to less points than anyone in the NBA. They are a great defense and they won out in this matchup against the Wizards' high-powered scoring attack.

Bradley Beal was held scoreless in the first half. The Wizards as a team were limited to 92 points and only twice this year have they scored less.

The streak is now over at 23 games. It was an impressive feat, so here are some numbers to put it in perspective...

--The 23-game streak was just the 14th-longest in Wizards/Bullets franchise history, but it was their longest since the 1988-89 season when they won 26 straight. The longest 100-point streak franchise history, at 48 games, was accomplished by the Baltimore Bullets in 1965. 

--Long 100-point streaks were quite rare for a while until just recently. The Wizards' streak is the 10th-best since the start of the 1992-93 season. No team reached 23 games from 1993 until 2008, a span of 15 years. Of the top 10 since 1992-93, five of them occurred this season, which is kind of amazing. In addition to the Wizards, the Celtics, Spurs, Warriors and Rockets have done it this year. The Rockets' streak is active at 46 games, double that of the Wizards. 

--The streak is not all that common in NBA history, in that the Wizards' 23-game streak is tied for 216th all-time. The longest 100-point streak ever is 136 games, held by the Denver Nuggets. That streak began in January of 1981 and ended in December of 1982. The Rockets' 46-game streak is only 43rd all-time.

--The Wizards' 23-game streak is the longest in Scott Brooks' career as a head coach. His 2014-15 Oklahoma City Thunder got to 22 games. All the teams Brooks coached with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and others, and none of them matched what the Wizards accomplished.

--Washington's streak is longer than the best in franchise history for six different teams: the Grizzlies (9), Heat (16), Hornets (20), Pelicans (8), Raptors (20) and Timberwolves (11).

Tyler Cavanaugh sparks George Washington to 3rd straight win

Tyler Cavanaugh sparks George Washington to 3rd straight win

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tyler Cavanaugh scored 22 points and sparked a breakaway run in the second half as George Washington defeated George Mason 83-74 on Sunday to pull even with the Patriots in the Atlantic 10 standings.

Cavanaugh has scored 19 or better in the Colonials' last three games, all wins, and has topped 20 points a dozen times this season. Sunday, the senior made 8 of 17 shots, grabbed seven rebounds and had three assists. With the lead at 57-54 and 8:19 to play, Cavanaugh drove for a score that started a 15-9 run over the next 3-1/2 minutes that gave the Colonials some breathing room in a game that saw 10 ties and nine lead changes.

The win lifts George Washington (16-13, 8-8) into a three-way tie for sixth place in the A-10, and owns the tie-breaker over both George Mason (18-11, 8-8) and La Salle.

Marquise Moore led George Mason with 20 points and six assists. Yuta Watanabe scored a season-high 18 and Jaren Sina 16 for George Washington, which had a season-low five turnovers against 17 assists.
