Loss By Detroit Pistons Ties NBA Record For 28th Straight

(CTN News) – To avoid a 28th consecutive loss, which would equal the longest losing streak in NBA history, the Detroit Pistons managed to push the game into overtime against the top-ranked Boston Celtics on Thursday night. However, Boston ultimately prevailed with a final score of 128-122.

Despite reaching overtime for the first time during this losing streak, the Detroit Pistons now share the same record of 28 consecutive losses as the “Trust the Process” Philadelphia 76ers.

To prevent breaking the record, the Detroit Pistons must secure a victory against the Toronto Raptors at home on Saturday night.

During the game, Detroit initially built a significant 21-point lead in the first half, only to find themselves trailing 106-100 in the final two minutes of regulation.

Jaden Ivey’s six consecutive points helped erase the deficit, and Bojan Bogdanovic’s putback with 4.6 seconds remaining sent the game into overtime.

However, it was Derrick White who shined in the extra period, scoring 10 of his 23 points. Additionally, Kristaps Porzingis contributed six points during overtime, including a dunk after receiving a full-court pass from Jayson Tatum, followed by sinking a pair of free throws to secure a 125-117 lead.

Porzingis finished the game with a total of 35 points, 11 of which were scored in the fourth quarter. Notably, eight of those points came during a crucial 10-0 run that transformed a four-point deficit into a 106-100 lead.

Boston’s Tatum showcased his skills with 31 points and 10 assists, contributing to their fourth consecutive victory and ninth win in the last 10 games.

Detroit Pistons Cunningham led his team with an impressive performance, scoring 31 points and providing nine assists. Ivey also made a significant impact with 22 points and 10 rebounds, while Duren contributed 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Unfortunately, the Detroit Pistons faced a tough loss to Brooklyn, marking their 27th consecutive defeat and setting a new NBA record for most consecutive losses in a season. This unfortunate streak spanned over two seasons, from 2014-15 to 2015-16, for the Sixers.
