Outlook

Rasheed Wallace will come off the bench, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press. I’m fine with Curry’s logic for this game. He wants Wallace to play limited minutes and in the fourth quarter. Bring Wallace off the bench makes the rotation easier to handle.

But Wallace should be starting once he can handle regular minutes. Kwame Brown can’t keep this level of play up.
