(AUBURN HILLS, MI/USA)...Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce John Akouri joined General Counsel Jeffrey Lance Abood in leading a delegation of members, friends and family to 'Lebanese Night' at the Detroit Pistons basketball game last night. The Pistons would beat the New Orleans Hornets in overtime, during what was a very exciting game. In addition to Akouri and Abood, the group included Executive Committee Member Louis J. Peters, Jr. and his family, Special Assistant to the President Eric Sywak, Deputy Consul General of Mexico, His Excellency Jorge Sánchez-Cataño and his family and friends Elie Naim and Ely Tawk, who had just arrived from Beirut for the holidays and was attending his first NBA game. The Pistons defeated the Hornets 111-108 despite being two players short — Richard Hamilton (upset stomach) and Rodney Stuckey (toe). The Pistons remained determined throughout the match, rallying from a 10-point halftime deficit to pull it out in OT.
