Records like that are SO waiting to be shattered! You have to change which statistics you use determine the favourite. If you look at the chances of a team going 18-0 in any given situation (in this case, avoiding three straight losses), the probability that a rival team will break the streak actually increases with time, and similarly the chances of a team winning three straight games (eventually... hopefully this series!) also increases. See? Math can prove anything!
