Detroit Pistons Kick Off Their Home Opener With Style (Video)

Prior to tip-off of the game between the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday at The Palace of Auburn Hills — which happened to be the team’s home opener – a new player intro video debuted and the team put on a show containing much pomp and circumstance. There were glow sticks, a choir performing “Lose Yourself,” smoke and fog and flames shooting out of the backboards and it was emceed by public address announcer John Mason. It was quite the spectacular scene.

Sadly for the Pistons and their fans, the team fell to the Cavs by a score of 105-89. Even more sadly, it’s possible that the exciting intro routine with the accompanying video very well could be the best part of Pistons games at The Palace for the balance of this season. Sad but true. But hey, I could be wrong. Never count out Detroit, people.
