Detroit Pistons 2012-2013 Schedule: Opener at home on Halloween vs. Houston Rockets

New, comments
Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The 2012-2013 NBA schedule was released today! That means we have the Detroit Pistons' schedule. You can find it after the jump.

Some key notes about the season:

  • They open the season at home against the Rockets on Halloween. Then, they head out west for six straight. That shouldn't be a hard start at all.
  • They have three nationally televised games -- Nov. 16 vs. Magic (ESPN), Dec. 10 at 76ers (NBA TV), Feb. 27 at Wizards (ESPN), but those are always subject to change.
  • The January 17 home game vs. the Knicks might be played at an international venue. Time for the game is TBD.
  • After a grueling lockout shortened season, I'm counting only 15 back-to-backs, which I'm pretty sure is fewer than seasons past.
  • The Lakers game on Feb. 3 at 1 pm is on Super Bowl Sunday. So, you get some Pistons and Lions that day. And maybe another Detroit commercial.

Game times are at 7:30 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted
