2014/2015 Detroit Pistons Schedule

The Detroit Pistons will begin the 2014-15 season on Wednesday, October 29 with two road games at Denver and at Minnesota on October 30. Highlights of the Pistons' home schedule include two appearances by LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the Central Division rival Cleveland Cavaliers and two match-ups with the new-look Miami Heat featuring Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng. A road-heavy stretch at the end of the season could determine the Pistons playoff chances. Seeing as the Pistons are the only team in a basketball-popular Michigan, ticket sales are good for the team.

Detroit Pistons History

The Detroit Pistons were founded in 1941 as the Fort Wayne (Zollner) Pistons, before relocating to Detroit in 1957. They used to play in the National Basketball League before joining the NBA in 1948. After the move in 1957, they struggled for many years as they had strong individual players but lacked team play. The team began to make a turnaround in 1981 when they acquired several key players that would take the team to the top of the league. The famous coach, Chuck Daly took control of the team and led them to win the championship title two years in a row - 1989 and 1990.

Detroit Pistons Star Player: Andre Drummond

Andre Drummond was one of the top rated basketball players in his high school class of 2011, and attended the University of Connecticut for his freshman year before declaring for the 2012 NBA Draft. Drummond was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the number 9 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. In his debut season Drummond quickly became one of the most effective players for the Pistons, averaging 7.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1 steal and 1.6 blocks in just 20.7 minutes per game. Drummond was named to the 2012-13 NBA All-Rookie second team following his debut season, as well as finishing 4th in NBA Rookie of the Year voting. The 20 year old is a rising talent and the best offensive star the Pistons have.

Detroit Pistons Star From the Past: Isiah Thomas

In the 1981 NBA Draft, the Detroit Pistons chose Thomas with the No. 2 pick. Thomas was named to the All-NBA First team three times and is the Pistons' all-time leader in points, steals, games played and assists. He ranks fifth in NBA history in assists (9,061, 9.3 apg) and ranks ninth in NBA history in steals (1,861). Thomas was known for his dribbling ability as well as his ability to drive to the basket and score. His No. 11 was retired by the Detroit Pistons. The 12-time NBA All-Star was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Detroit Pistons Head Coach: Stan Van Gundy

Stan Van Gundy was appointed head coach of the Detroit Pistons in May, 2014. He has had plenty of experience coaching in the NBA, serving as the HC of Miami Heat from 2003 to 2005 before resigning midseason. He then coached the Orlando Magic for five seasons from 2007 to 2012. During his debut season with the Heat, he coached the team to a 42-win season and surprised many by making it to the second round of playoffs. In Van Gundy's first season with the Magic, he guided them to a 52-win season, earning the team's first division championship since the 1995–96 season, and the third-best record in the Eastern Conference. More success was found in the 2008–09 season. The Magic won 59 games, second most in franchise history, along with a second consecutive division championship. They also advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995 to face the Los Angeles Lakers, but lost the series in five games. He will hopefully bring his winning success to Detroit, who haven't played a winning season since Flip Saunders left in 2008.
