Pistons lose final game at Palace of Auburn Hills

Pistons lose final game at Palace of Auburn Hills

Beal and Morris scored the Wizards' last 15 points in a 105-101 victory in the Pistons' final game at the Palace, their home in the Detroit suburbs since 1988.

The Detroit Free Press is producing a commemorative section about the Palace of Auburn Hills on Sunday, and we want to include your favorite memories of the Palace. The Wizards have won six of the past nine games in the series. Monday night was about appreciating the past and looking eagerly toward the future.

Detroit: Visit the Orlando Magic to end the season. "It's just another moment in greatness, and being around that, and being able to just bask in it". Next season the Pistons move downtown to the new Little Caesars Arena. There were countless sentimental touches, from the lone trumpeter playing strains of "The Final Countdown" to set up player introductions to the return of players from all eras to a halftime ceremony where the three championship trophies were on display.

The 29 years of the Palace saw the Pistons "Bad Boys" of Isiah Thomas crowned champions in 1989 and 1990, with Detroit also capturing the title in 2004.

Hillary Clinton disagrees with Trump's reason for ordering airstrikes on Syria
Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that " she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it's been analyzed by many of us ".

"A few of us have said it, all of our years playing here, that man, we wondered what it would have been like playing in the city". "He was playing really, really well and in this stretch where we're playing a lot of guys who haven't played a lot, to have a guy out there who could really organize things was really helpful". "I think it's phenomenal that they have that opportunity to play in the city of Detroit". The loss snaps a two-game winning streak.

In November of 2004, the building's most infamous moment occurred when Indiana's Ron Artest - now known as Metta World Peace - went into the stands, precipitating perhaps the worst melee in National Basketball Association history.

I know we are rooting for this team to tank, but it would be nice to see the Pistons go ahead and close out their last game in the Palace on the right note.

The final game is at 8 p.m. when the Pistons take on the Washington Wizards. The game tonight was the last Pistons game at the Palace before moving to downtown Detroit next season.
