The Pistons have used the same five starters in each of their first 69 games this year. We know it's an NBA record, but just how extraordinary is it? David Dupree of USA Today tells us:

Only three other teams have started more than two players in every game, and 12 teams don't have a single player who has started every game. No other team has even had more than three players play in every game, let alone start each one. Only 41 players in the entire league have played in every game, and only 25 have started every one.
