Prince climbs franchise games list

The Sports Xchange

--Forward Tayshaun Prince, who played in his 700th NBA game during the Pistons' last home stand, reached another longevity milestone Sunday. He passed Lindsey Hunter on the franchise's all-time games-played list, with his 704th career appearance.

That moved him into fifth place, with Vinnie Johnson (798) as his next target. If Prince remains with the Pistons for a few more seasons, he could reach Joe Dumars' record of 1,018 games. Prince had 20 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday but committed a pivotal turnover on Detroit's final possession in regulation.

--With a 16-29 record, the Pistons would need to win at least 17 of their remaining 21 games to avoid their fourth consecutive losing season. They were 30-52 last season, 27-55 in 2009-10 and 39-43 in 2008-09. The last time they had four consecutive losing seasons was a stretch of six consecutive sub-.500 campaigns from 1977-78 through 1982-83. The Pistons had 13 consecutive losing seasons after the inaugural season in 1957.

"I felt like we had it (Sunday), but I felt like we had every game on this road trip. We could have been 4-0." -- Forward Jonas Jerebko after an overtime loss to the Clippers that dropped the Pistons to 1-3 on their West Coast trip.
