Gerald Wallace
14 PTS, 9 REB, 6 AST
3-7 FGs, 7-8 FTs, 2 STL

Avery Johnson
On shifting Gerald Wallace to power forward:

"You saw the way Gerald ignited our break for us. Over 60 percent of the league is playing this way. We've had spacing issues, a lot of issues when we've looked back at all of our ioffense in the first 25 games. So no matter who they started at 4, we were going to start Gerald at 4."
