The 3-12 are back home to host the 7-6 Memphis Grizzles. The Grizzlies will try to take Friday night’s game at the Palace to make it back-to-back road games for the first time in nearly a year. Meanwhile Detroit would like to avoid their first five game home losing streak since 2009-10.
- The good: More time on the floor for Brandon Knight. The Pistons help Michigan Come Together.
- The bad: Stuckey out as well as Bynum, Mad Ants call up and new Piston Walker Russell may just see some time. The Pistons have lost their last three games against Memphis.
- Who to watch: Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol.
- The unknown: Will Greg Monroe look as good on court as his 70′s giveaway poster tonight? Will and can Tayshuan Prince carry Detroit again? Will Charlie V play anytime soon?
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports. If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 the Ticket.
Have some Ice at the Palace
“We are pleased to announce the entertainment line-ups for our upcoming theme nights which include exclusive player themed poster give-a-ways for the first 10,000 fans in attendance at each game and halftime musical entertainment,” said Harlan Hendrickson, Vice President of Lifestyle Marketing for Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Pistons. “Theme nights are a fun way to provide our fans with additional entertainment elements at our games.”
The club will host “I love the ‘80’s” night on Friday, January 27 when the Pistons square off against Joe Johnson, Josh Smith and the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The give-a-way item for that night is a commemorative Jonas Jerebko poster and halftime musical entertainment will feature 1980’s hit-maker Morris Day.
Younger Pistons’ fans won’t want to miss “Totally ‘90’s” night on Friday, February 3 when Detroit hosts Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30 p.m. at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Ben Gordon poster and the halftime musical performer will be 1990’s rapper Vanilla Ice, who’s single “Ice Ice Baby” was the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts.”
I’m all over it!
Even though my team is going through some tough times, I’m going to head out to the games to give them support. I can’t wait for my Greg Monroe Poster on Friday night.
And don’t think I’m not going to head out to mock Vanilla Ice. Who wouldn’t want more comedy at the half than during the game?
