This incident made the Palace of Auburn Hills look like an amateur boxing ring. And no––I'm not referring to the notorious Pacers-Pistons "Malice in the Palice" brawl of 2004 starring Ron Artest.This time around, it was only Pistons point guard Will Bynum throwing the punches, as he took an untimely swing at Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough with under 9 minutes remaining in last Saturday's game. As a result, Bynum served a one-game suspension (he'll be back for the 2/27 Pistons-Wizards game) for what he claims was an unintentional jab occurring in the heat of the moment.  Not-so-sly move, Mr. Bynum.
