It's been a while since the Detroit Pistons last won a playoff game.
The Pistons dropped their 13th straight postseason game when they fell 119-103 to the visiting Milwaukee Bucks in Game 3 on Saturday, tying the record for the league's longest playoff losing streak.
The New York Knicks lost 13 consecutive playoff games from 2001 through 2012.
Detroit's skid began in Game 5 of the 2008 Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics. The Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Pistons in the opening round the following season, and then again seven years later.

Blake Griffin returned to action for the Pistons after missing the first two games of the first-round matchup with a sore knee, finishing with 27 points, seven rebounds, and six assists in 31 minutes of action.
Milwaukee holds a commanding 3-0 lead and can finish off the Pistons to establish a new record in Game 4 on Monday.
