Pistons winning three straight road games a miracle for this team

The Pistons beat the Bucks in Milwaukee on Wednesday, the Heat in Miami on Tuesday and the Nets in Brooklyn on Nov. 24.

Yes, that’s three straight road wins for Detroit.

David Mayo of MLive:

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?

Sure is.

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.

    I have been complaining about Mo’s inability to make game time decessions, like taking a time out when the other team scores 12 straight points.  But, for the first time in years, it seems like he is at least making changes at half time.  The 3rd quarter has been our achilles heel for the last couple of year and this year it has almost been a turning point for the team.

    How have you been complaining for years?  This is his first season as Piston HC and prior to this he was an AC with the Thunder.

      I didn’t say I was complaining for years, just said that it’s been years since the Pistons made good half time adjustments.
