John Wall had his way with Kyrie Irving in a 91-78 win on Friday, scoring 28 points with six rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.
The Scoop:He made 12-of-20 from the field and bounced back nicely from a three-game streak of failing to shoot over 37 percent. Wall's dimes are hold steady at around nine, his steals are up and his scoring is right where it needs to be at 19 per game. He's one of the best point guards in the NBA at age 24.
John Wall hit just 5-of-17 shots to score 11 points, but also had six rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 35 minutes on Wednesday.
The Scoop:This was not the game his owners were hoping for, but it's hard to be too mad at him for a double-double with some steals and blocks. He'll look to get back on track Friday against Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nene and reserve Kris Humphries scored 16 points apiece, John Wall had 15 points and 10 assists, and the Washington Wizards improved their impressive start with a 98-93 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.
John Wall double-doubled in a 98-93 win over the Magic on Saturday with five rebounds, 10 assists, one block and one 3-pointer.
The Scoop:He did only make 6-of-17 from the field and turned the ball over three times. Wall does have three doubel-doubles in his last five games, averaging 19.8 points, 4.0 boards, 8.4 dimes, 2.0 steals and 0.4 triples in that span. He's an elite asset in all leagues.
John Wall made 3-of-13 from the field against the Raptors on Friday for eight points with three rebounds, seven assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.
The Scoop:Yikes. He had two 30-point games in his last four, but tonight dropped his averages over his last five to 19.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 9.2 dimes, 2.4 steals and 0.8 triples and 3.2 turnovers. He's still a top-12 asset in fantasy leagues.
John Wall made 7-of-13 from the field for 18 points in a 97-90 win over the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, four steals and four turnovers.
The Scoop:He's been up and down this season and the Wizards usually go as Wall goes when it comes to winning games. The 24-year-old is not making many threes this season and is just 23.5 percent from that range, but he could get better as the year goes along.
