After falling short in last June's Finals, the Mavs are chasing more than just 70 wins.
Only one team in NBA history has ever won 70 games in a single season, but the 2006-07 Dallas Mavericks have a legitimate shot at joining the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. Just don't bring up such numbers around Mavs head coach Avery Johnson:

"We're a hungry basketball team because we don't have what we've been looking for," Johnson said. "Even though we may have a decent record, we still haven't been awarded anything yet."

While Chicago's 72 wins are out of reach, the team still has a shot at the 70-win mark. Since dropping the first four games of the year, the Mavericks have won at an astonishing 89.2 percent clip. At that rate, Dallas would fall just short of 70 wins in the 78 games to close the season.

But can the Mavs finish the season with another incredible run? Good question, and the answer may be no. They play seven of their 13 remaining games on the road and face Phoenix, San Antonio and Utah down the stretch.

None of that stops us from counting to 70. With each Mavericks victory, we'll continue to use the best season on record as a measuring stick for Dallas' success. So, take a look at how this year's elite squad stacks up against Jordan, Pippen and the Bulls of a decade ago:
