Its a NBA ‘last place’ Detroit loses to Utah for 25th straight loss

The Detroit Pistons’ losing streak, ranked last in the National Basketball Association (NBA), extended to 25 games. If we lose one more time, we will face the disgrace of being tied for first place in this category.

Detroit lost 111-119 to the Utah Jazz in the 2023-2024 NBA regular league home game held at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan, USA on the 22nd (Korean time). 먹튀검증사이트

As a result, Detroit (2 wins, 26 losses) suffered its 25th consecutive loss. There has been no win for nearly two months since beating the Chicago Bulls 118-102 in late October.

The record for the most consecutive losses in a season is 26, set by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2013-2014 season and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2010-2011 season.

Philadelphia (2014-2015, 2015-2016 seasons) had the longest losing streak in the regular league over two seasons, losing 28 games in a row from March to November 2015.

Detroit, which is suffering from the worst slump, is ranked last not only in the Eastern Conference but also in the entire NBA. The San Antonio Spurs, at the bottom of the Western Conference, are in a better situation than Detroit with 4 wins and 23 losses.

Utah’s ace Lauri Markkanen and Jordan Clarkson were absent, but Kelly Olynyk poured in 27 points with a 62.5% field goal percentage, pushing Detroit into the quagmire.

In addition to Olynyk, six players, including Colin Sexton (19 points) and Chris Dunn (13 points), performed well, scoring in double digits.

In Detroit, ace Cade Cunningham contributed with 28 points and 10 assists.

Jayden Ivey and Marvin Bagley III scored 24 and 22 points, respectively, to support Cunningham on the outside and under the goal, but could not prevent the loss.

Detroit collapsed after making 20 errors.

According to sports media The Athletic, Detroit fans who were angry at the team’s continued slump chanted “Sell the team” at the end of the game.

It is an unpleasant situation for Detroit, which brought in coach Monty Williams, who led the Phoenix Suns until last season and put an end to the team’s dark period that began in the 2010s, through a very large contract.

Coach Williams was appointed as Detroit’s head coach last June, and at the time, local media such as ESPN reported that the contract size between the two sides was $12 million (approximately 15.6 billion won) per year for six years.

After the game, Coach Williams said, “This game hurts more than other games. I want to spare words. The team that played yesterday gained 50 more points through mistakes and rebounds. How can we be inferior in this aspect?” “It’s difficult to understand whether it exists,” he said.

Unlike Detroit, which received two days of rest, Utah came to Detroit immediately after playing an away game against Cleveland the day before.

“We can turn this around. We can play a lot better basketball,” Cunningham said.
