X-Factor: Big Ben's X-cellent Night

Wallace
While teammates Tayshaun Prince and Richard Hamilton added the glitter, Ben Wallace provided the usual grit that proved instrumental in Detroit's Game 1 trouncing of New Jersey. The Nets never got going offensively, and Wallace's 11 rebounds, four steals and three blocks obviously had lots to do with it. Big Ben also rang in 13 points, including four in a game-breaking 18-3 third-quarter run.
