Pistons Snap Historic Skid, Topple Raptors 129-127 in Detroit

 Detroit finally found their winning touch, ending a record-tying 28-game losing streak with a thrilling 129-127 victory over the Toronto Raptors. This win lifts the Pistons out of the NBA's history books, where they had been tied with the 76ers for most consecutive losses in a single season.




Cade Cunningham led the charge for Detroit, racking up 30 points and 12 assists. Bojan Bogdanovic chipped in 19 points, Jalen Duren posted a double-double (18 points, 17 rebounds), and Kevin Knox II added 17 points.


The Raptors, however, weren't going down without a fight. Pascal Siakam exploded for 35 points, Dennis Schroder added a double-double (30 points, 9 assists), and Gary Trent Jr. contributed 24 points. Scottie Barnes chipped in with 22 points and 9 rebounds.


Detroit controlled the first half, building a comfortable lead and entering halftime ahead 52-44. However, the Raptors roared back in the third quarter, fueled by Trent's hot shooting and Siakam's offensive dominance. The score remained tight throughout the fourth, with both teams trading baskets.


The Pistons finally pulled away with a late 11-2 run led by Cunningham and Jaden Ivey. Barnes kept Toronto in the game, but it wasn't enough to overcome the deficit. Siakam's late three-pointer brought the Raptors within 4, but Detroit sank free throws to seal the victory.


This win is a monumental moment for the Pistons, not just for snapping the losing streak but for the resilience they showcased. The team overcame a short-handed Toronto squad depleted by a trade earlier in the day.


With this victory, Detroit finally gets a fresh start and can look forward to building momentum in the new year.
