On Tuesday, December 26th, the Detroit Pistons made history despite their loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
It’s not what you think though, with this loss they became the first team in NBA history to lose 27 straight games.
Piston’s guard Cade Cunningham had an astounding game as he finished with 41 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as they lost 118-112 to the Brooklyn Nets at Little Caeser’s Arena in Detroit.
Piston fans were heated after this loss. There were fans seen wearing paper bags that said, “sell the team”. Chants were heard throughout the arena during the game saying, “Sell the team” as well.
After hiring former Phoenix Sun’s coach, Monty Williams, the Piston’s organization, and Piston’s fans thought there were good days ahead. After 29 games that does not look like the case.
The Pistons are currently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference and the NBA with a whopping record of 2-27. According to many NBA news and analytic pages, the Pistons are on pace to finish with the worst record in NBA history. The current record is held by the 2012 Charlotte Bobcats when they finished the shortened NBA season 7-59.
While now on the wrong side of history, red hot Cade Cunningham and the Detroit Pistons will try to break their historic losing streak Thursday night against Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics at 7:30p.m. in Boston. Will they finally break their streak and upset the best team in the NBA or extend their historic losing record, the outlook isn’t so good.
