Defensive Specialist

The Bulls like to say that Ben Wallace's contributions are not reflected in the box score. That's true as "number of open shots within 5 feet of the hoop not taken" is not an official NBA stat. Well, here's something I found in the box score: for the second consecutive game, Big Ben's man corralled 20 boards. Wilt Chamberlain Brad Miller went off for 22 points on 80% shooting and 20 rebounds (twice his season average) as the Kings beat the Bulls.

Mercifully, Boylan played Duhon only 18 minutes (which was enough time for Du to take and miss one shot).
