The Detroit Pistons set an NBA record for futility on Tuesday night with another loss to the Brooklyn Nets, their second in two games, in downtown Detroit.

Cunningham said that the losing streak has been wearing heavy on the Pistons for “a while now.”

The former top overall pick had 41 points, nine rebounds and five assists on 15-of-21 shooting, staking his claim as the Pistons' best player amid the record-setting losing skid.
