For a normal franchise, losing 15 in a row would be an all-time low. But not with the Clippers.
Saturday's loss to San Antonio moved them within one of tying their franchise mark of 16 consecutive defeats to start a season and two from Miami's NBA mark of 17, set in 1988-89.
"I haven't even thought about it too much about it until recently because people keep bringing it up," Eric Piatkowski said. "We've got a tough schedule ahead us. Who knows what is going to happen?"
The Clippers are also moving in on their own overall losing streak of 19 games, accomplished twice, once over the 1982-83 season and again in 1988-89. Unless the team goes 0-50, it'll be tough for the Clippers to top their dismal 1988-89 season where they followed their 19-game losing streak with an 0-13 drought for a 1-32 stretch under Coach Gene Shue, who was fired and replaced by Don Casey in the middle of the season.
