Pistons announce 2010-11 schedule

The Detroit Pistons announced their schedule on Tuesday. The Pistons will open the season on the road at New Jersey on October 27. Detroit will host the Oklahoma City Thunder in the home opener on October 29.

Highlights of the schedule include two home games (Feb. 11 and March 23) against LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. The defending champion L.A. Lakers come to The Palace of Auburn Hills on Nov. 17 and the Eastern Conference champion Celtics come to town on Nov. 2 and Dec. 29.

Detroit will host Milwaukee on Nov. 26 as part of Thanksgiving weekend and host the Dallas Mavericks on Martin Luther King Day (January 17) in a special matinee game (3:30 p.m.).

“We’re excited about the 2010-11 schedule and pleased that our fans can enjoy 25 weekend or holiday home games,” Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars said in a press release. “Our players and staff are looking forward to training camp in October, getting the season started.”

The Pistons have moved the game time of all Friday night games from 8 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the exception of opening night due to feedback from fans.

Detroit plays two nationally televised games. ESPN will broadcast the Pistons game at Indiana on March 30 and NBA TV will air Detroit’s game at Charlotte on Dec. 27.
