The Detroit Pistons are on the verge of making history, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

After losing 119-111 to an injury-plagued Utah Jazz team, the Pistons have now lost 25 consecutive games, one shy of the NBA record.

On Saturday, the Pistons will meet the Brooklyn Nets, and everyone associated with the team will be hoping that they can escape matching the NBA’s single-season losing streak record of 26 games.
Coming into the game, Pistons fans would have expected this to be the game that ended the team’s losing skid. The Jazz were missing several key players for the trip to Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, including the NBA’s 2023 Most Improved Player Lauri Markkanen and 2021 Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson.

AThe game, however, turned out to be more of the same for the struggling Pistons, with the Jazz leading at halftime 64-58.

The break appeared to be exactly what Detroit needed, as it rallied back into the game with a solid third quarter, leaving only a two-point deficit to overcome coming into the fourth.

Despite this, the Jazz held on for a 119-111 victory, dropping the Pistons to a 2-26 record on the season.
