Detroit Pistons Break Record with 27th Consecutive Loss in Season in NBA

The Detroit Pistons have made NBA history by becoming the first team to lose 27 straight games in a season, falling 118-112 to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. This loss broke the record previously held by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers for the most consecutive losses in a single season.
However, Detroit no longer shares the unwanted mark, and with a game coming up against the NBA-leading Boston Celtics, it seems likely that they will match the overall record of 28 straight losses set by the Philadelphia 76ers from late in the 2014-15 season through early 2015-16.
The game against Brooklyn started with some hope as Detroit led 9-1 and had a 14-point lead in the first quarter, but poor shooting, defense, and turnovers allowed Brooklyn to gain the lead and extend Detroit’s losing streak. Cade Cunningham scored 41 points, but it wasn’t enough to secure a win for the team.
In the final minute, frustrated fans started chanting “Sell the team! Sell the team!” However, Pistons owner Tom Gores was not in the building to hear it.
The Detroit Pistons’ historic losing streak has been a challenging and disappointing time for the team and its fans. As the season continues, they will be looking to break this streak and turn their luck around.
