DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Detroit Pistons begin their season Wednesday night.

They'll begin the 2020-21 campaign at Minnesota on Wednesday, December 23, followed by a return to Little Caesars Arena for their home opener on Saturday, December 26 (7 p.m. EST) against Cleveland.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club will not host fans to open the regular season. The organization says it will continue to work closely with the NBA and state and local authorities to identify appropriate timing for safely welcoming back fans to Little Caesars Arena.

The 2020-2021 NBA season will feature 72 regular season games for each club. The first half of the Pistons’ season will include 37 games, comprised of 17 home contests and 20 road contests.

The 2020-21 NBA All-Star break is scheduled to take place March 5-10, 2021, between the first half and second half of the regular season schedule.
