The Detroit Pistons are tied for the NBA’s second-longest losing streak, which helps their odds at landing the No. 1 overall pick.
After a week that included losing five-straight games, the Pistons are moving up the draft board instead of towards the playoffs. That would be expected of a team that’s dealt with the injuries they have.
Blake Griffin had his second knee surgery in eight months, Reggie Jackson missed 42 games before his recent return and Luke Kennard has missed over one month with knee tendinitis. What team could survive that?
