Dating back to his last head coaching stint with the New Jersey Nets, it had been a while since Lawrence Frank had coached a winning team. After losing the first three games of the season, Frank, who lost 17 straight before being fired by the Nets, had lost 20 straight personally. Saturday’s win helped Frank put that ugly mark behind him. Brendan Savage of the Flint Journal:
Only six other coaches have had losing streaks of at least 20 games and the NBA record for consecutive losses is 26 set last year by Cleveland’s Byron Scott.
“I’m all about setting records,” Frank joked before turning serious “It’s never been about me. It’s good for our group to experience a little success. Like I said, we have to keep working and grind to get better.”
