Let's hope the Mavericks aren't streak-busters tonight.
The Phoenix Suns have lost their last 18 games when they have been on TNT.
"I'd like for somebody to do some research and find out how many of those were on the road and how many weren't against great teams,'' coach Alvin Gentry said at shootaround. "Usually, if you're on TNT, it's a pretty good matchup.
"And we're playing another great team tonight. How many of those have been against the Lakers or Boston or Dallas or Denver or San Antonio? Probably most of them. We haven't played any really bad teams on TNT. You don't get that luxury.''
For the record, 14 of the games have been on the road and four at home during the Suns' TNT skid.
"That's four we should have won,'' Gentry said.
