(Gibson) The Old 97's might be the Dallas Mavericks' good-luck charm. Earlier this season, the country-rockers were part of Old 97's Day with the Mavericks, during which they played a pre-game concert and frontman Rhett Miller sang the National Anthem.

The event happened to come at a low point for the season and Miller boldly declared, "We're going to start a winning streak today." The Mavs then won five games in a row. Now they're competing for a spot in the NBA Finals.

"I'm not going to take credit for it ... [but] they've been great ever since," Miller told ESPN.com's Page 2. The singer-guitarist is a huge Dallas sports fan, especially of the Mavericks. At that March event, he presented Mavs all-star Dirk Nowitzki with a custom Epiphone guitar that carried both the Old 97's and the Mavericks logos on the front. The German-born power forward even jammed with the guys. more on this story
