The Pistons start the much awaited regular season tonight at The Palace of Auburn Hills against The Indiana Pacers. Now this isn’t your Indiana of old, even though Jeff Foster is still on the roster. Indiana will be without their leading scorer Mike Dunleavy JR. On Detroit’s side, Kwame Brown is expected to be in uniform tonight with a right shoulder strain, while Walter Sharpe’s left knee bruise continues to heal he won’t be. Alex Acker and Cheikh Samb will also start this season in their dress clothes.
I’m as excited as most of you are and will be heading over to The Palace early to see what sort of trouble I can get myself into. For those of you watching the game on TV, FSN will be starting the Piston broadcast off at 6:30 pm with The Pistons Season Preview followed by Pistons insider at 7 pm and the pre-game at 7:30 pm. Tip off is at 8 pm, as always you can listen live on the radio on 1130 AM WDFN The Fan with the live stream at NBA.com.
Remember the new Chat room feature that I will be adding to each game thread, I would love to hear your feedback on it. There is also a link at the top of the page to the Chat Room page.
Here’s to a healthy, winning Pistons 2008-2009 Season!
