NBA – The Pistons Are At Home Against The Denver Nuggets – Billups Number Retired

Posted on February 10, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

The Pistons host the Denver Nuggets tonight at The Palace in their last action before the All-Star Break.

Detroit is looking to bounce back from a 103-89 loss to Toronto Monday, while Denver had their two-game winning streak halted by Brooklyn earlier this week.

 

The Pistons will retire Chauncey Billups’ number one jersey during a halftime ceremony tonight.

Billups, known as Mr. Big Shot, played for Detroit from 2002-2008, helping the team to the 2004 NBA Championship where he was named Finals MVP.

This is the second time this season the Pistons have retired a jersey belonging to a member of the 2004 title team.

Last month Ben Wallace’s number 3 jersey was raised to the rafters at The Palace.
