Detroit Pistons tie NBA record for longest losing streak in a single season


The Detroit Pistons have tied the NBA record for the longest losing streak in a single season after marking their 26th consecutive defeat on Saturday night in Brooklyn, New York. With the 126-115 loss to the Nets Saturday, Detroit is now tied with the 2010-2011 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-2014 Philadelphia 76ers for the longest single-season record at 26 games. The 76ers hold the overall losing mark at 28 games, a dubious achievement that spanned two seasons. The losing streak started at the end of the 2014-2015 year and continued into the following season.
