Pistons are 0-17 when trailing entering fourth quarter

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

If it tracks with the NBA calendar, the Pistons will host Washington on Friday night looking to snap not only a six-game losing streak but a season-long stigma of being unfailingly doomed to defeat when they trail after three quarters.

The Pistons are 0-17 in such circumstances

This is a great stat by Langlois, and I wanted to give it a little more context:

  • The Pistons have the league’s worst record when trailing entering the fourth quarter – followed by the Hornets (0-15) and Wizards (1-18).
  • NBA teams have a 61-302 (.202) record in such games this season.
  • Obviously, a team’s deficit entering the fourth quarter matters a great deal, and the Pistons are near the median.
