Led by head coach Lawrence Frank, the Detroit Pistons motor onto the storied court at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Fans can witness rookie Brandon Knight, the eighth overall pick in last summer’s NBA draft, as he crosses defenders alongside fellow Kentucky alum and nine-year veteran Tayshaun Prince. Knight’s electrifying, up-tempo college play has carried over to the start of his professional career in Motown, allowing fast breaks to bloom into alley-oop dunks that wake up Henry Ford’s ghost, who sleeps beneath the court’s floorboards. Manning the middle, double-double machine Greg Monroe continues to emerge as a frontcourt force by rebounding for second-chance points and Ben Wallace’s stash of magic headbands hidden on top of the rim.
Promotional giveaways equip early arrivers with hometown swag prior to the start of each game, including a poster on April 13, a Pistons hat on April 17, and a Pistons baseball-style jersey on April 19. During breaks on the court, a visual feast of entertainment delights fans in the form of cheerleaders’ choreography, T-shirt cannons’ wearable ammunition, and halftime shows’ aluminum-siding-installation tips.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
Although their name fondly alludes to Michigan's proudest industry, the Detroit Pistons rolled off the assembly line in a different state entirely—Indiana. Automobile-part mogul Fred Zollner founded the team as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, joining the young National Basketball League in 1941. Under Fred's direction, the Pistons immediately found success on the court, winning back-to-back NBL titles in 1944 and 1945 and amassing 166 wins in just nine seasons.
As the sport grew, so too did the team. In need of a bigger audience, the Pistons left Fort Wayne for the Motor City, where they continue to challenge Eastern Conference opponents in the NBA. Throughout the years, the team has claimed three NBA championships—most recently in 2004—produced hall of fame players, and earned the record for the highest-scoring game in NBA history—a 186–184 triple-overtime win over the Denver Nuggets in which both teams accidentally scored touchdowns for a whole quarter.
