Coaches and fans talk about teams playing meaningful games down the stretch of the season as one benchmark of a team’s progress.
Monday night the Pistons played some meaningful minutes, keeping the game close with the Hawks into the fourth quarter before losing their 24th game in a row. That was a positive sign for a team that had been clobbered in their last six games.
Detroit is on the brink of setting the all-time NBA record for losses, which could come before the end of the year.
Michigan sportsbooks have markets on every Pistons game and player performance. FanDuel and Caesars have future markets on teams to make the NBA playoffs and league awards like MVP and Coach of the Year.
