Memphis (12/9) with a 93-92 loss. Prior, the Pistons had swept their previous four-game home stand (Nov. 30-Dec, 6). The four-game home sweep marked the longest home stand sweep by Detroit since
a five-game home streak from Jan. 31-Feb. 10, 2008.

Detroit ranks sixth in opponent points per game, cracking the top 10 in the category for this first time since 2008-09. Here is a look at how Pistons’ teams over the last eight years have ranked in
the NBA in opponent points per game.

Reggie Jackson ranks third in the NBA in drives per game (12.0) and second in points off drives (8.3) among players with 15-plus games played. Here is a look at the top five players in terms of points off
drives.

Reggie Jackson recorded 34 points and a season-high 16 assists in Detroit’s 127-122 overtime win vs. Phoenix (12/2). Jackson became the first Piston to record 30-plus points and 15-plus assists in a game
since Isiah Thomas recorded 40 points and 17 assists vs. Denver (1/2/88).

Andre Drummond is one of only three players in the NBA (Russell Westbrook and Jimmy Butler) to record a steal in every game this season. His 25-game steals streak is the longest by a Piston since the
NBA started recording steals in 1973-74 and is the longest streak to start a season since Chris Paul recorded a steal in the first 39 games of the 2012-13 season.
