Default Who should start, Ben Wallace or Jonas Jerebko?

Pistons coach Lawrence Frank might have an interesting decision for tonight's road game against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Does Frank continue to start defensive stalwart Ben Wallace, or does he opt for more firepower by starting Jonas Jerebko?

In Saturday night's 94-91 win over Portland, Wallace started his fourth game in five days. It paid off, as Wallace limited the damage by the Trail Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge, who entered the game seventh in NBA scoring and put up 25 points.

Jerebko entered late in the first quarter and scored 11 points in 21 minutes. He has come off the bench the past four games, and before Saturday's game Frank was resolute about making that decision.
