For the last four seasons, the Pistons and Warriors have finished with losing records. In 2008-09, the Warriors won 29 games. The Pistons won 39. The next year, the Warriors won 26 games. The Pistons won 27. Last season, Warriors won 23 games. The Pistons won 25. With 2010-11 the only exception, the Pistons have finished with a better record than the Warriors lately – the type of faux accomplishment the Pistons love brag about.
