A 41-year-old man was charged Sunday with calling in a fake bomb threat at The Palace two hours before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The bomb threat that delayed the matchup between the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers for 1 hour, 25 minutes Friday was one of four received that night regarding the game, police said.
Last season, the Pistons beat the Lakers. Now they've adopted the Lakers' casual approach to the regular season.
The Pacers posted a 94-81 victory over the Pistons in a game that was overshadowed by a bomb threat that delayed the start by almost 90 minutes.
The start of the Detroit Pistons-Indiana Pacers game in Auburn Hills, Mich., has been delayed. Police and officials at The Palace did not given a reason for the delay, but were expected to hold a news briefing shortly.
I expect the Pacers to weather the brawl fallout and still make the playoffs.
The Pacers are having just as much trouble shooting over the Pistons' defense from 3-point range.
