2011-12 Detroit Pistons Schedule

The NBA released the 2011-12 schedule Tuesday night. The Pistons will open the season at Indiana but then will play six of their next nine games at home -- including, funny enough, yet another matchup with the Cavs in the home opener on Dec. 28. Considering Detroit's only two preseason games are also against the Cavs, that's kind of a bummer, but whatever -- it's real life NBA basketball in a game that actually counts, so we'll get over it quickly.

Unfortunately, there's some bad news for out-of-towners: the Pistons will play in front of a national audience only twice, and not until April, when they face the Hawks on NBA TV on April 6 and the Bucks on ESPN on April 13. There's always online streams NBA League Pass.

From the Pistons press release:

"We are excited to announce the 2011-12 Pistons' regular-season schedule and pleased that 19 home games will be played on weekend dates," said Dennis Mannion, President of Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Detroit Pistons. "We have worked tremendously hard to elevate every facet of our business from operations to game presentation and customer service with the goal of presenting a new level of entertainment and excitement for our fans."

[...] Detroit will play 18 sets of back-to-back games this season. Four of its back-to-back sets fall on the road, five begin on the road and conclude at home, five are home-and-away back-to-backs and four sets are home-and-home back-to-backs.

We'll probably take a closer look at the schedule in the next few days, but until then, the full thing is below the jump:
