One NBA team’s December to remember has earned them a place in the record books. Here’s KSWB with the details.

“The Clippers won all 16 of their games in December, becoming the third team in NBA history - the Clippers we’re talking about here! - to record a perfect month.”

The Clippers join the 1996 San Antonio Spurs and 1971 LA Lakers as the only teams to go undefeated for an entire month. (Via Fox Sports West)

But a perfect month isn’t a foreign concept to Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro - it turns out (pop up Del Negro 2) he was the captain of those ‘96 Spurs. (Via Bleacher Report, Spurs Nation)

With a sweet seventeen straight W’s in tow, Clippers players used phrases like “It’s unreal”, “I really didn’t know it was a month”, and “That’s crazy” when told about their streak’s place in the history books. (Via Los Angeles Times)

ESPN points out Lob City isn’t the only team to win seventeen straight, but adds that the team’s road doesn’t get any easier from here.

“The Clippers’ win streak is now the 3rd longest in the NBA over the last ten seasons. After Sunday, LA’s next three opponents are at .500 or better.”

But a writer for Sportige says the Clippers could keep rolling because “This isn’t just a team that got hot by accident and are winning with a lot of luck. The Clippers are … bulldozing almost everything that stands in their way.”

Del Negro and the Clippers next get the chance to extend their streak on New Year’s day in Denver.
