Pistons Lose NBA Record 27 Straight Games, Falling to Nets 118-112 - Sell the Team

"History Made: Detroit Pistons Break NBA Record with 27th Consecutive Loss, Fans Chant 'Sell the Team' in Frustration"

The Detroit Pistons have made NBA history by becoming the first team to lose 27 straight games in a season. This unfortunate record was solidified when they fell 118-112 to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. The Nets had previously beaten the Pistons on Saturday in Brooklyn, handing them their 26th consecutive defeat, which matched the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers for the most losses in a row within one season. However, Detroit no longer shares this unwanted mark. The next goal for the Pistons is to avoid breaking the overall record of 28 straight losses, which was set by the Philadelphia 76ers from late in the 2014-15 season through early 2015-16. Unfortunately, it seems likely that they will at least match this record, with a game against the NBA-leading Boston Celtics coming up. The game against Brooklyn, like the season, started with some hope, as Detroit led 9-1 and had a 14-point lead in the first quarter. However, poor shooting, defense, and turnovers allowed Brooklyn to extend the Motor City's misery. Despite a strong performance by Cade Cunningham, who scored 41 points, the Pistons were unable to secure a win. The frustration of the fans was evident as they started chanting, "Sell the team! Sell the team!" Although Pistons owner Tom Gores was not in the building to hear it.
