Want evidence the Pistons are more intriguing this season?
Two of their games are scheduled to be televised by ESPN, according to a team release:
- at Sacramento, Fri., Nov. 15, 10:30 p.m.
- at Orlando, Wed., Feb. 5, 8 p.m.
Two more are slated for NBA TV:
- vs. Denver, Sat., Feb. 8, 7:30 p.m.
- at Boston, Sun., March 9, 6 p.m.
I don’t have exact figures, but that seems like more designated nationally televised games than the Pistons have had in recent seasons. Plus, some of the national games in previous years have been switched to local television, because the Pistons were even more lackluster than expected.
Hopefully, the Pistons will be one of the teams that gets nationally televised games added to their schedule.
