The Pistons open the 2012-2013 season at home on October 31st against the Houston Rockets, so get your Andre Drummond costumes out and head on over to the Palace of Auburn Hills on Halloween.

So far the Pistons have just 2 nationally televised games on the schedule but that’s not set in stone, remember they took one away from them last season and if this team catches fire, you can be that they’ll add one here or there on TNT or ESPN (we hope).

  • From the Comments - The Jan 17th game vs NYK is at an “International Venue” btw.  

I’ve updated the schedule on the sidebar of the website.

Have you picked your all time Pistons lineup yet?

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?

The 25-46 Pistons are in Cleveland to take on the 13-57 Cavs Friday night. The Pistons are looking to snap a seven game road losing streak with a win against the Cavs. Cleveland on the other hand is just looking to win.

  • The good: They are playing the CAVS
  • The bad: Detroit hasn’t won a road game since before the All Star break.
  • The unknown: What will Friday bring as far as the Pistons starting lineup goes?

With just a handful of game left in this unstable Pistons season, one thing we can count on is that we won’t be seeing Jonas Jerebko return.

Need4Swede - Jonas Jerebko

It’s official and I’m OK with that.

Jonas is one of the bright spots on the roster. A kid we knew nothing about when the Pistons drafted him turned into a fan favorite as soon as he stepped on the court. How can you not like him? He’s a legitimate talent, a hard worker an all around good guy and he’s not too bad to look at.

Need4SwedeI know he was itching to get back on court, but why risk it?

Knowing Jonas and his work ethic, I’m sure he’ll come back stronger than ever next season.

There is a Need4Swede in Detroit, and I for one am happy to wait ’till next season to reap the benefits of or Swedish Viking.

And until he return…I’m setting this as my text message tone.

The 17-29 are in Miami to take on the 31-14 Heat Friday night. NBA.com seems to think that a visit from Detroit is just what the Heat need during their toughest stretch of the season.

If you’re keeping tabs, Rip Hamilton’s “flu” symptoms have subsided enough to make the road trip to South Beach and NYC.

Rodney Stuckey (right shoulder contusion) is listed as day-to-day. Does that mean that Rip will play if Rodney doesn’t? Your guess is as good as mine.

  • Stuckey says he was misquoted in the Dime piece.  They are “among” the best teams on paper.  He also says the sky is the limit.
  • Rip and Tay not surprised they are back. Really? We want the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
  • Patrick Hayes over at PistonsPowered has a slew of Video interviews from media day…go check them out.  He of course got a little Need4Swede, who talks about keeping his starting  job.
  • Will Rip hold his tongue with the new crack down on technical fouls?
  • Mr. Glass McGrady feeling healthy.
  • Kuester not worried about the backcourt rotation?  He should be, unless he knows something is going down.
  • Don’t forget open practice this Saturday.
  • Could Ike make the roster?

Around the Way Detroit Pistons News

  • Great, great read over at Pistons.com (5 part series) on Will Bymum Part I and Part 2.
  • Look at the cover boy on the Pistons new Marquee! I don’t mind seeing Will when I’m driving up to the Palace.
  • I don’t care how bad off the Pistons are in terms of finances or fan turnout.  I don’t want to see this when I head over to Pistons.com.

The Pistons vs. The cavaliers

The 23-44 Pistons are hosting the 52-15 Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at the Palace.  One hopes that they will at least put up a fight after last night’s debacle against the Celtics.

If you didn’t look at the front page of NBA.com, you missed this headline and article.
Davidson’s death, rough economy lead to Pistons’ demise

A lot of truth there and pretty fitting after the Pistons performance last night.

Ben Wallace is still listed as day to day.
Rodney has no timetable on his return.
No conformation whether Tayshaun will play or not.

With Jonas Jerebko now starting at power forward, Kuester would have to go in another direction for Prince’s replacement – perhaps Austin Daye, who has a pair of starts already under his belt. Daye totaled 29 points and 11 rebounds in starts on Nov. 27 against the Clippers and Jan. 18 against the Knicks. He scored a career-high 16 points at New York. Via Ryan Pretzer at Pistons.com
