    ‘Malice at the Palace’ examines infamous Pistons-Pacers brawl


    One of the darkest chapters in Detroit sports history gets the deep-dive treatment in Netflix’s “Untold: Malice at the Palace,” which unpacks the infamous 2004 brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills when players and fans came to blows.

    The story of the near-riot isn’t exactly untold, as it’s been examined up and down and all around and has been aired and re-aired an untold number of times. But the documentary special, part of Netflix’s five-part sports-doc series — other chapters focus on boxer Christy Martin, tennis player Mardy Fish and Caitlyn Jenner — takes on the incident from a unique perspective, at least around these parts, looking at it through the eyes of the Indiana Pacers team at the center of the storm. 

    The season prior to the melee saw the Pistons and the Pacers battling it out in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Pistons won that series, and went on to win the NBA Finals, yet another missed opportunity for Pacers legend Reggie Miller to win a championship ring.
