Yes, that’s three straight road wins for Detroit.
The Pistons also have won three consecutive road games for the first time in more than five years.
That seems like a long time. Is that a long time?
Before Wednesday night, the Pistons had gone 1,761 days without a three-game road win streak – easily the longest-such active drought in the NBA.
Days between three-game road winning streaks is obviously a contrived stat, but I think there’s some meaning here. The Pistons for too long lacked the talent and discipline to win consistently on the road, but that’s changing for the better.
There’s obviously a long way to go, but Detroit is making progress, and this is a sign of it.
Now, I look forward to when the Pistons winning three straight road games happens at least once per calendar year and isn’t cause for special attention, as is the case for a majority of NBA teams.
