How rare is Mavs' 16-0 record vs. Bobcats?
By Marc Stein
A few pertinent Mavs numbers after Saturday night’s destruction of Charlotte:
*The Elias Sports Bureau reports that the Mavericks’ all-time record of 16-0 against Charlotte makes them the first team in the league to win its first 16 games against another franchise since Utah got off to a 17-0 start against the Vancouver Grizzlies from 1996 through 2000.
*O.J. Mayo’s seven 3-pointers, en route to 30 points, represent a career single-game high. It was Mayo’s ninth career game with at least 30 points.
*The Mavs have won five or their last seven games without Dirk Nowitzki dating to last season. Somehow.
