    Default Most losses to start a season




    Does New Jersey own that record from a few years ago?

    Has anyone heard what the longest losing streak by a Pistons team is to start a season? Is this it?

    Giving a quick look at the dates, this appears to be the longest to start a season. 1962 was the record at 7 games.

    Just select "Play Index" on the top menu. It will give you all kinds of tools to find streaks, games, seasons, head to head player comparisons, etc.

    And yes, NJ is the longest streak to start at year at 0-17.

    Longest consecutive streak is Cleveland in 2010-11 when they lost 25 in a row.
