The Dallas Mavericks continue to struggle when it comes to overtime. The Mavericks suffered a 99-96 overtime loss to the New Orleans Hornets. New Orleans used a 30-13 run from the 5:14 mark of the third quarter through the 7:12 mark of the fourth period to turn an 11-point deficit, 60-49, into a six-point advantage, 79-73. With the overtime loss, Dallas tied an NBA record with their 10th consecutive overtime loss, joining Atlanta, Golden State and Minnesota in that dubious club. Dallas dropped to 0-7 in overtime games this season. The franchise record for the most overtime games in a season is eight (which occurred in three different seasons). Dallas went 4-4 in overtime games in 1995-96, 4-4 in overtime games in 1997-98 and 5-3 in overtime games in 2009-10.
