    The record is 14. This was "accomplished" twice... from March 7th-30th of 1980, and from December 20th to January 18th 1994.

    Here are the Pistons next 7 games...

    @ Orlando
    @ Boston
    Denver
    Golden State
    @ Atlanta
    Orlando
    NY Knicks

    I think the losing streak will end with a win over the Warriors, putting us at 11 consecutive losses, which would put this streak as the 5th worst in the 60+ year history of the franchise.

    It all hinges on a road game against Nelly.

    I don't know why, but I really really feel like we're gonna beat Orlando on Friday. Up until two days ago I thought we had no chance against them on the road, but for whatever reason I get the feeling that we'll win big tomorrow.

    It could be any of those.

    The highest probability is probably 11, but not by much.

    The Pistons have owned Orlando for many years now... but these ain't your father's Pistons. The Pistons will get blown out on Friday.

    Hopefully tomorrow against the Magic, but probably at home against GS. Maybe AI will get a minor injury in the beginning of the Orlando game and Wallace won't get a stupid T, so we can actually have a chance to end this skid at 8.

    With the way we've been playing at the Palace lately, I'm not so sure that the GS game is a guaranteed win.

    Of course not... nothing is guaransheed with this team. If they lose to Golden State, I'll go on record for saying that they will break the record.

    No option for 8?

    We are winning tomorrow.

    I suppose I could have left that in as an option (and 15+ instead of just 15)

    But I doubt the streak ends tomorrow, even though we are playing our whipping boys, the Magic.

    They lose to the Nugglets by using the "Matador Zone". Chauncey is grateful, but sad. Another hotel room is reserved and....

    They beat GS by only 2 points, even though that lousy team has only won 5 road games this season.

    Eleven losses in a row should do it... :yukpuke::yukpuke:

    If MC decides to play a Center AND a Power Forward a the same time, you could be right.

    I'm wondering how many it will take to get him fired. If they win one then lose four more is that enough?:loser:

    Better question; Will Amir ever play again?

    And if not, can the streak go on till next season?
