The 23-52 Pistons in Atlanta to face the 48-27 Hawks Saturday evening.
Riddled with injuries to some key players in the final weeks of a frustrating season, Detroit (23-52) will miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2000-01 season. Making matters worse, the Pistons are mired in their longest losing stretch since dropping 13 in a row from Dec. 15-Jan. 11.
The Pistons haven’t won since a 101-87 victory over Washington – one of two teams worse than them in the Eastern Conference – on March 12.
Silver lining – The Pistons are just a game ahead of the Wizards and Warriors for the 3rd worst record in the NBA. What does that mean? More L’s = More Balls!
