Struggling Pistons seek to avoid tying league’s record
The Detroit Pistons find themselves on the verge of an unwanted record as they suffer their 25th consecutive loss. If they lose their next game, they will tie the league’s record set by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2013-2014 and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-2011.
Building for a better future
The Pistons are determined to build a sustainable team and are not simply focused on winning a single game. “That’s history that nobody wants to be a part of,” says Cunningham, the team’s coach. Despite their current struggles, they believe they are not as bad as their record suggests.
A bleak reality
However, the reality on the court tells a different story. In their recent game against the Utah Jazz, who were missing several key players, the Pistons suffered a 119-111 defeat. The team’s poor performance was exemplified by their 1-for-10 shooting from beyond the arc in the fourth quarter.
Fans express frustration
After the game, videos circulated on social media showing disgruntled fans chanting “Sell the team” and some resorting to wearing paper bags over their heads. The frustration among the fan base is palpable as the team continues to underperform.
A tough pill to swallow
First-year coach Monty Williams expressed his disappointment with the team’s performance, particularly in turnovers and rebounds. “For whatever reason, it’s been the same story all year long with those two categories,” Williams lamented. The loss was especially hard to accept considering their opponents had played the night before.
Next opportunity for redemption
The Pistons will have a chance to avoid tying the league’s record when they face the New York Knicks on Saturday night. The team will be hoping to end their losing streak and turn their season around.
