Losing to the Nets (112-118) this Tuesday, the Detroit Pistons suffered their 27th consecutive defeat in the NBA, which was enough for a sad record for one season.
Wembanyama’s poor run with the Spurs caused a stir as he went on a streak of 18 consecutive defeats in the NBA before winning against the Los Angeles Lakers in mid-December. Far worse off today are Frenchman Kyllian Hayes’ Detroit Pistons. Detroit Pistons, last in the Eastern Conference, suffered their 27th consecutive defeat against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, December 26 (112-118). While the record was broken in the same season, Cleveland Cavaliers (2010-2011) and Philadelphia Sixers (2013-2014) remained at 26.
Despite the great Cade Cunningham, the author of 41 points, Michigan’s men couldn’t do anything. Even before the final whistle, Red-Blue fans chanted, “Sell the team!” He was chanting slogans and asking franchise owner Ed Stefanski to sell the franchise. Then the boos were released from the stands and the players left the field with their heads bowed, their faces hidden under white towels.
Is a new record in sight?
If they lose Thursday in Boston, Massachusetts, the Pistons will have the longest losing streak in NBA history, Philadelphia’s 28-game losing streak that spanned two seasons in 2014-15 and 2015-16. A sad figure to relate to Killian Hayes, the highest French draft pick in the NBA (7th in 2020) until the arrival of “Wemby”. The former leader of Cholet, who alternated between starting and reserve status in five majors if he did not play due to illness, has not been successful with his team against the Chicago Bulls since October 29 (118-102).
