Win four Pistons tickets!

Michael – who sometimes comments here as IsraeliPiston – won four tickets to the Pistons’ Oct. 10 game against the Raptors. As you might guess, he lives in Israel, so he’s not going to make it to this game.

But, graciously, he wants a PistonPowered reader to enjoy the four seats (section 215, row 15, seats 13-16). To be eligible to win, just send a correct answer to the following trivia question to PistonPoweredcontests@gmail.com, and one winner will be randomly chosen.

The only Israeli-born NBA player currently plays with a former Detroit Pistons summer-league player. Name that former Pistons summer leaguer.

Detroit Pistons-Utah Jazz ticket winners and trivia answers

Congratulations to Peter Brown and Bill Gitterman, who each won two tickets provided by StubHub! to Saturday’s Pistons-Jazz game. Sorry if you guys were pumped to watch Deron Williams.

They won the tickets by answering Wednesday’s trivia question:

At this very moment (hint, hint), 20 NBA players have a career scoring average of at least 20 points per game and have played for only one NBA team. Name them.

Here are the 20:

  • Alex Groza
  • Billy Cunningham
  • Blake Griffin
  • Carmelo Anthony
  • Dan Issel
  • David Robinson
  • Derrick Rose
  • Dirk Nowitzki
  • Dwyane Wade
  • Geoff Petrie
  • George Mikan
  • Jerry West
  • John Havlicek
  • Julius Erving
  • Kobe Bryant
  • Larry Bird
  • Michael Redd
  • Paul Arizin
  • Paul Pierce
  • Tim Duncan

Those are the 20 I had in mind when I asked the question, but three other players – Kevin Durant, Elgin Baylor and Bob Pettit – played for one franchise their entire career. The trick is their team changed cities, leaving them in a gray area, but I counted those guys, too.

Win tickets for Saturday’s Detroit Pistons-Utah Jazz game from StubHub!

Thanks to StubHub! for providing four tickets in Club 125, Row Q for Saturday’s Pistons-Jazz game. Per usual, we’ll give away the tickets by trivia.

At this very moment (hint, hint), 20 NBA players have a career scoring average of at least 20 points per game and have played for only one NBA team. Name them.

To be eligible:

1. Send your answers to PistonPoweredContests@gmail.com (one e-mail per entrant).

2. Order your answer alphabetically by last name, and number them. Put one player on each line.

3. Follow PistonPowered on Twitter (and include your Twitter in your e-mail, so I can verify).

Each correct answer earns you an entry in the lottery for the tickets (limit: 20 answers per person), so feel free to answer, even if you can’t name all 20 players.

I’m going to split the tickets into groups of two, but the same person could win both sets.

Win four tickets for Monday’s Detroit Pistons-Atlanta Hawks game!

Thanks to StubHub! for providing PistonPowered readers a chance to win four tickets in Section 120B, Row HHH to Monday’s Detroit Pistons-Atlanta Hawks game.

Once again, I’ll give the tickets away by trivia questions. I’m splitting the tickets into two groups of two, and if you answer two of my three questions correctly, you’ll get one entry into the lottery for a set of tickets. If you answer all three correctly, you get another entry into the lottery. So, if you answer two correctly, you can win two tickets. But if you answer all three, you could win up to all four.

  1. The Hawks eliminated the Pistons from the first round of the playoffs in 1997 and 1999. Who led Atlanta in points for both those series?
  2. Name the five people who have written posts for PistonPowered.
