Miami’s Oct. 26 visit highlights Pistons preseason schedule
Given where that falls on the preseason schedule – it’s the seventh of eight preseason games for the Pistons and comes one week before Miami’s Nov. 2 regular-season opener – there’s a pretty good chance Heat coach Erik Spoelstra will give his three All-Star starters plenty of minutes that night.
The Pistons will play three preseason games at The Palace in addition to what has become a traditional game in Grand Rapids. This year’s Meijer Basketball Classic at Van Andel Arena, against the Toronto Raptors, is scheduled for Oct. 12.
The preseason opener will be held Oct. 9 at The Palace against Minnesota. The other preseason home dates, in addition to the Miami game, is Oct. 23 against Charlotte, which features two top-10 draft picks.
On the road, the Pistons will play at Atlanta, at Toronto, vs. Milwaukee at Green Bay, and at Orlando to conclude the preseason.
The Pistons open the regular season at The Palace against Indiana on Nov. 2.
