In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, John Wall is having quite the coming out party in the world’s premier basketball league. Since returning from a knee injury which sidelined him for 33 games, Wall is averaging 18 points, 7.6 assists, and 4 rebounds per game. While these numbers are undoubtedly impressive, it’s his play in the past two weeks which is garnering massive attention. In the Wizards’ seven most recent games, Wall is averaging 28.8 points, 7.3 assists, and 6.1 rebounds per game. This includes last night’s 104-85 victory over Indiana, where the former Wildcat dropped 37 points on 16-25 (64%) shooting from the field.
Much has been made recently about Wall receiving max money on his next contract, and judging from his recent play, he looks to deserve every penny coming his way. If you’re interested in watching Wall perform, the Wizards take on Boston today at 6 pm on CSNN.
