The Detroit Pistons don’t know how to win anymore and tonight came up with defeat number 28 in a row in the game they lost to the Boston Celtics, tying the worst streak ever over multiple seasons, while it has already far surpassed the worst ever over a single year.
Despite being up by 19 points at halftime and drawn by friendly fire whistles from the TD Garden crowd, the Detroit Pistons fell to the Boston Celtics 128 to 122 in overtime tonight, extending their league record to 28 consecutive losses.
Cade Cunningham was once again an absurd player in the Detroit loss, leading his team’s charge in the first half with 22 points while playing stellar defense on Jayson Tatum. He finished with 31 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists and 2 stoppages with 12 of 22 from the field and 4 of 6 from long distance in another fantastic individual performance.
Unfortunately, however, the Detroit Pistons just don’t seem to be able to win. They currently tied the worst losing streak ever seen in the NBA, 28, which, however, the Philadelphia 76ers had racked up in two consecutive seasons. Now the Detroit Pistons, after the overtime knockout against the Boston Celtics, have an “opportunity” to set another bad record.
Perhaps the Pistons’ encouraging play lately — they almost beat the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday — will finally lead them to victory in their next game, against the Toronto Raptors at home.
