The Palace of Auburn Hills, Michigan was about half empty during Tuesday night's match up between the Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks, providing spectators with ample opportunities to improve their seats. As you can see, two fans took this to the extreme, and actually ended up sitting on the visiting Mavericks' bench, between Vince Cater and Delonte West.

While the Mavs were a man down, due to Jason Kidd's bulky back, coach Rick Carlisle resisted the urge to send either of the sauced bench invaders into the game.

Check out the Pistons' TV announcers surprised reaction to the bizarre scene below.
