Hawks Set Consecutive Win Record

The Atlanta Hawks beat the Washington Wizards in overtime 98-89 winning their 11th consecutive game since the opening of the season. The win was a club record for consecutive wins to open a season–and the 6th best start in the history of professional basketball. The all-time record is 15 straight wins to open a season - a mark held by the Houston Rockets (1993) and the Washington Capitols (1948)
