NEW YORK, The Detroit Pistons will unveil second road uniforms during their home game against the Denver Nuggets tomorrow night tipping off a week where second road uniforms will be unveiled by the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Nuggets as well. The four teams will reveal their second road looks to fans during home games this week. This marks the first time in franchise history the Celtics, Cavaliers and Nuggets will have second road uniforms. Fans will also be able to get an interactive look at the new uniforms on NBA LIVE 06, NBA 2K6 and NBA '06 videogames by unlocking them with a special password that can be accessed at NBA.com in the "Videogame" section under "Player Nation" on the day they are released.

The Pistons second road jersey will be unveiled as "Red Returns." The uniform, which is red with blue and white accents, completes the set of current Pistons uniforms which are white at home and blue on the road. "PISTONS" is emblazoned across the chest of the uniforms in white letters and blue and white stripes run down the sides. The shorts are also red and feature blue and white stripes down the sides of the legs. The team¡¦s new secondary logo, a "P" with a "D" inserted inside the "P", unveiled over the summer, is stitched onto the front of the left leg.

Fans can see the Celtics uniforms during the team's home game against the Charlotte Bobcats on November 25. The uniforms were inspired by the Celtics uniforms of the past and pay tribute to the team¡¦s long and storied history. The new design incorporates the color black, adding a modern touch, along with the team¡¦s signature green. The word "BOSTON" appears on the front of the jersey in black honoring the original wordmark of the team's road uniforms prior the 1970's. The shorts include a triangle-shaped insert on the side with a shamrock in the center exactly as it appeared in the shorts worn from 1946-48.

Nuggets fans will see their team's second road uniforms on November 25 at home against the Los Angeles Clippers. A new script "Nuggets" is featured on the front of the jersey. The navy colored uniform uses the existing home and road uniform silhouette as a base, still featuring the "mountain peak" side insert. A twist on the silhouette is an athletic navy-yellow-navy stripe that splits the insert. The team¡¦s new secondary logo, being unveiled in conjunction with the uniform, features crossing pick axes, a mountain peak and a ball and provides an iconic representation of the team. The logo is featured on the centerback neck of the jersey and sides of the short.

The Cavaliers will show off their second road uniforms at the November 26 home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The primary color is navy blue and creates a distinct new look for the team. The front of the jersey is wordmarked with "Cavaliers" in white with a gold outline. The jersey design takes historical inspiration from the team¡¦s 1970's uniforms for the trim and braid, which include alternating panels of navy, wine and gold. The November 26 game will air live on NBATV.

All four second road uniforms were made by Reebok and feature Reebok's Play-Dry moisture management performance fabrics. Jerseys will be available nationally at retail, including the world's only NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, NBA team shops, and online at NBAStore.com.
