Pistons vs. Nuggets: Detroit loses 118-109, clinches losing record

What we've long took for granted is finally official: the Pistons are losers in 2013-14.

The Pistons fell Wednesday night in Denver, 118-109. But you should be used to this by now, right? The loss was Detroit's fourth in a row, which sounds bad until you realize it's the fifth time this year they've suffered a streak that long.

Take another step back and realize it was also their 42nd of the season, guaranteeing six straight years of sub.-500 basketball, a dismal streak that spans five coaches, all of whom have somehow managed to do worse than the guy before him.

(Remember that one time Joe Dumars traded for Allen Iverson and Michael Curry coached a 39-43 team that went to the playoffs? Ah, the glory years.)

In any case, I didn't watch the Pistons lose on Wednesday, and I'm not particularly inclined to fake it. So go read Vince Eillis at the Detroit Free PressVinnie Goodwill at the Detroit News or David Mayo at MLive.com. It sounds like it wasn't very fun: the Pistons were winning until Josh Smith did something bad (this time, an ejection), which helped fuel the other team to victory. Rinse and repeat.

For six damn years.
