This is a day old, but still worth checking out. It’s video of the Detroit Pistons 2012 player introductions. Clearly the Pistons are copying Chrysler’s ideas, but whatever. The fans seemed to eat it up. The pomp and circumstance, complete with a full choir, glowsticks, and excessive pyrotechnics, might be the best thing fans at The Palace will see all year.

Boston 96, Detroit Pistons 85: Porous defense sinks Pistons again

A 12-point road loss at Indy. A 16-point thumping at the hands of the Cavs at home. And finally a 96-85 beating at the hands of the previously winless Celtics on Friday night.
