They threw up jump shots at their new home Tuesday. Then they tossed around some compliments. The Detroit Pistons hit the court for the first time at Little Caesars Arena during a "Meet the Team" event. They liked what they saw from the $863 million facility. "It was awesome. It's beautiful," Tobias Harris said. "It was exciting to get out on the floor with my teammates. But overall, it's top of the line, so we're excited." Jon Leuer called it awesome. "You can tell it's a state-of-the-art facility," Leuer said. "I'm excited to see what it looks like tomorrow night on a game night. The fans tonight, it was really cool. For an event like this to have that many fans here, the energy in the building was great." Coach Stan Van Gundy walked the team through a few drills while explaining the concept to fans. The Pistons make their LCA debut Wednesday in their preseason opener against the Charlotte Hornets (7 p.m., no TV, FM-97.1 The Ticket).
