The Detroit Pistons equalled the longest losing run in NBA history as they were beaten by the Boston Celtics for a 28th consecutive defeat.

Detroit, who lost 128-122, matched the record set by the Philadelphia 76ers across the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.

The Pistons led by 21 points at one stage against the Celtics but went on to lose in overtime.

They face the Toronto Raptors on Saturday aiming to avoid taking sole ownership of the losing record.

And, after a score from Detroit’s Bojan Bogdanovic sent the game into overtime, Derrick White scored 10 points to ensure the Celtics, who have the NBA’s best record, achieved a 24th win of the season – and extended their perfect home streak to 15-0.

Elsewhere, LeBron James scored 17 points and contributed 11 assists as the Los Angeles Lakers claimed a 133-112 win against the Charlotte Hornets.

Anthony Davis top scored for the Lakers with 26 points to help his side earn only their third victory in nine games since triumphing in the NBA in-season tournament.
