    Re: Sport news

    Depending on the country and the sport it may vary how many teams get into the finals/playoffs.
    In some countries in ice-hockey for example, 8 best teams make it to the playoffs/post season and play against each other.
    In this case the team made its way to the top best teams in 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 consecutively but this ended in 2005 because they failed to get enough points to get into the finals.

    Re: Sport news

    From the context given, it sounds like you're making reference to the New Orleans (formerly Charlotte) Hornets basketball team. According to the blue text, they played well enough during the regular season that they made it into the semi-finals (post-season) for five years in a row. But last year they failed to get into the semi-finals, therefore their five-year "streak" had ended.
