Celtics Face Pistons Amidst Historic Losing Streak, Jaylen Brown Out

The Detroit Pistons have lost a league-worst 27 games in a row. It’s not just a season-worst losing streak; it’s actually the worst ever. Therefore, the Boston Celtics can probably afford a breather against Jaylen Brown. According to ESPN Insider Tin Bontemps, Brown will enter tonight’s contest against Monty Williams’ team with a lower back contusion. However, Jayson Tatum is expected to play.


The Pistons have dug themselves into an unprecedented hole. They are currently on pace to win just five games this season, which is even worse than the infamous 7-59 Charlotte Bobcats. The craziest thing about this is that they don’t have an objectively bad team.

Jaden Ivey and Cade Cunningham can both be pillars and building blocks anywhere. Jalen Duren is a blue-collar, old-school big who can dominate on both ends of the glass. Bojan Bogdanovic is an elite shooter that many teams can covet, and the list goes on and on.

It doesn’t mean they explode either. They seem to be making the best of every team right now because no one wants to be the team that ends their all-time losing streak. The Celtics, on the other hand, have been the league’s best team in both conferences this season, which isn’t far from a surprise when you look at their lineup and roster. They currently have 13.5 points ahead of this match. But hey, crazy things have happened around the league, and if Brown gets hurt, they might have a chance.
