In a crushing defeat, the Detroit Pistons set a new NBA single-season record by losing their 27th straight game. 

The historic loss occurred on Tuesday night as the Pistons faced the Brooklyn Nets, falling 118-112. Previously tied with the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers for 26 consecutive losses in a single season, Detroit now stands alone in this dubious distinction.

The next milestone in their sights is the overall record of 28 straight losses, held by the Philadelphia 76ers from late 2014 to early 2016. The Pistons have a tough challenge ahead with a game against the NBA-leading Boston Celtics on Thursday night.

Despite a promising start with a 14-point lead in the first quarter, the Pistons couldn't maintain their advantage. Cade Cunningham's impressive performance, scoring 41 points with 18 in the third quarter, wasn't enough to secure a victory.

In the final minutes, frustrated fans at Little Caesars Arena voiced their discontent, chanting "Sell the team! Sell the team!" even though Pistons owner Tom Gores was not present to hear the outcry.

The Pistons' struggle continues, and the road to breaking free from this losing streak remains uncertain. (Source: NBA)
