Gores Does Not Rule Out Possibility Of Pistons Leaving Palace For Downtown Detroit
Published November 1, 2012
DETROIT ROCK CITY: In Detroit, Terry Foster writes the Pistons “still know how to throw a good party.” Their home opener against the Rockets last night was “a spectacle that looked Olympian.” Foster: “If you are into dance and music, The Palace is the place to be. Owner Tom Gores has brought Hollywood to Detroit. Now if only he could bring the Lakers.” The Pistons are “at least entertaining,” but they are “not ready for prime time just yet” (DETROIT NEWS, 11/1).
TRICK, NO TREAT: USATODAY.com's Tim McGarry noted the Pistons "had big plans for their 'Halloween Spectacular' halftime show" last night, but with 58 seconds left in the second quarter, play "was halted due to excessive fog behind the basket." One of the fog machines for the show "started ahead of schedule, sending Palace employees into a frenzy" (USATODAY.com, 10/31).
