Dennis Rodman walked across the court to deliver the game ball in a brief pregame ceremony, setting the tone for a night of celebration — one final chance for Detroit fans to gather at The Palace of Auburn Hills and revel in all the Pistons accomplished during nearly three decades at the suburban arena.
