Longest losing streaks in Pistons’ history
The 14’s: 1979-80, 1993-94, 2021-22
The longest losing streak in Pistons’ history (so far) is 14 games, which has been done three times.
The first was that same 1979-80 team, which as I said, was the worst in franchise history with just 16 total wins, narrowly edging out last year’s Pistons.
Hey, the 1994-94 team makes an appearance again. They only won 20 games that season, which is how you end up with Grant Hill.
The final 14-game losing streak came in 2021-22, Cade Cunningham’s rookie season. Remember when there was hope? Even though Detroit only won 23 games that season, we had Cade! The #1 pick! The guy who was going to lead us out of the darkness!
I wish I could go back and warn myself that we were far from out of the tunnel.
So if you are keeping track, four of the longest losing streaks in team history have happened over the last three seasons, quite a feat and the reason the Pistons are 42-137 in that stretch.
Pistons fans have been patient, as their team racked up historic numbers of losses over the last four seasons, but unfortunately the wait for a competitive team continues.
