The Detroit Pistons etched their name in NBA history, becoming the first team to lose 27 consecutive games in a single season. This record-breaking feat was established tonight in the KO against the Brooklyn Nets with a final score of 118 to 112.
In their previous meeting on Saturday, the Nets had already inflicted their 26th consecutive defeat on the Pistons, aligning them with the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-2014 Philadelphia 76ers for the most consecutive losses in a single season.
However, Detroit is now alone in this special ranking of the NBA’s worst lineups. The team now points to an all-time record of 28 consecutive losses, a record set by the Philadelphia 76ers from the latter part of the 2014-15 season through the early stages of the 2015-16 season.
Toward the conclusion of tonight’s defeat, a frustrated crowd expressed their dissatisfaction with chants like “Sell the team! Sell the team!“. However, Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores was not present in the arena to hear them.
Let’s see if they really can beat even the Philadelphia 76ers’ record mentioned just above. That would be something really crazy.
