Wallace, Villanueva Start In Frontcourt

The Pistons coasted to an impressive win last night in Memphis against the Grizzlies. Detroit boasted a starting lineup that consisted of Charlie Villanueva and Ben Wallace alongside one another at power forward and center, respectively. It's a move that could pay major dividends early in this NBA regular season.

Villanueva struggled early, picking up two quick fouls in the first quarter before sitting out the remainder of the second half. Wallace appears to be in full-health and capable of providing a major presence defensively, much the way he did when he was a superstar defender during his initial tenure as a Piston.

We'll see if the Pistons can keep it up. Their next game is the home opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder Fri. night.
