Pistons fans are taking some flack for Friday night's brawl at The Palace.

Following the game, ESPN's John Saunders expressed his opinions about the fans' behavior.
"I'm here to tell you that the Pistons' fans, based on what I saw, are a bunch of punks."

"I'm here to tell you that the Pistons' fans, based on what I saw, are a bunch of punks. It's easy to throw beer on top of somebody who's already down. It's easy to throw a punch at somebody when you're behind them," Saunders said. "Show us that you're not a sissy. Just do it right. It just makes me mad. It's ridiculous. It's the worst thing I've ever seen."

Players and fans exchanged punches in the stands as the game turned so ugly a police investigation was necessary.

Indiana's Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson charged into the stands and fought with fans in the final minute of their game against the Detroit Pistons on Friday night, and the brawl forced an early end to the Pacers' 97-82 win.
