Piston fans get your calendars out. It’s time to circle some key dates for the upcoming 2022-23 NBA season. On Wednesday, the NBA released their regular season schedule for 2022-23 NBA Season. Your Detroit Pistons will open the season against the Orlando Magic and No.1 overall pick Paolo Banchero at home on Oct. 19. Next up are three road games – against the New York Knicks on Oct. 21, Indiana Pacers on Oct. 22 and Washington Wizards on Oct. 25 – followed by a two-game homestand against the Atlanta Hawks.
This could be one of the most exciting seasons for the Detroit Pistons in a decade or more. After executing a great draft, the team’s two 2022 top lottery picks, Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren, will make their debuts alongside the rest of its young core, headed by Cade Cunningham. In addition to Cunningham, Ivey, and Duren, the Pistons will have their tops picks from 2020 Killian Hayes, Isaiah Stewart, and Saddiq Bey ready to take their next step with the franchise. A handful of veteran roster additions were added to the Pistons’ roster this offseason, including Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel, who both joined the team via the Knicks. The team also signed Kevin Knox to a two-year contract and re-signed electrifying center Marvin Bagley III to a three year contract as well.
The Pistons will have a tough schedule early. Detroit’s first eight games will include three back-to-backs. The Pistons will host the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Oct. 30 before visiting the 2021 champion Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 31. The Pistons’ teal uniforms will debut in the second Hawks game, one of eight games in which they will wear teal at home: Oct. 28 against the Hawks, Oct. 30 against the Warriors, Dec. 4 against the Grizzlies, Dec. 18 against the Nets, Dec. 20 against the Jazz, Feb. 3 against the Hornets, Feb. 4 against the Suns, April 4 against the Heat. Additionally, the Pistons will wear the jerseys on the road, but those games have yet to be announced.
Finally, the Detroit Pistons’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers will air on TNT on January 10. Additionally, they will have three games on NBA TV – at home against the Mavericks on Dec. 1, in Paris against the Bulls on Jan. 19, and at home against the Bucks on March 27. Get ready for an exciting year of Deeeetroit basketball!
