Pistons Set Record With 27th Straight Loss
Cade Cunningham, Monty Williams, and the entire organization have fallen into a dark hole and one they are desperately wanting to get out of. Honestly, Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets seemed like that game was the game to end the horrific streak.
Detroit’s losing streak expands to 27th consecutive loss, which sets an NBA record of the most losses in a row in a single season. Fun fact, the 2015-16 Philadelphia 76ers have the most consecutive losses spanning multiple seasons with twenty-eight (2014-15, 2015,16).
What makes this even worse for Detroit is the fact they haven’t won a game since their home-opener against the Chicago Bulls on October 28th. What makes that game so weird to win is the fact Zach LaVine dropped 51 points against them.
Anyway fans look at this situation, it’s not looking to get better anytime soon. Some have to imagine general manager Troy Weaver is ready to make a trade to change the trajectory (to achieve a win) of this franchise.
Also, Cunningham balled out with 41/9/5 game. He dropped 37 points in the second half after being nonexistent in the first half. For Jalen Duren, the developing forward had 12/15 on the night. Bojan Bogdanovic also had a night with 23 points.
However, despite all these efforts from the core members of this group, the bench was virtually nowhere to be seen on the court.
It continues to write the tragic story of this franchise, will it change? Hopefully. For now they’ll continue their horrific streak until it gets broken. The trade deadline is February 8th, 2024.
