It’s starting to get to the point where John Wall’s ridiculous stat line shouldn’t surprise anyone. He did it again today by putting up 18 points, 13 assists, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks in a 104-98 victory over the Hawks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
It was the fourth consecutive Game 1 win on the road for the Wizards, becoming the first team in NBA history to achieve that feat. It was a come from behind victory as Atlanta held a 10-point lead at halftime, but Wall was able to overcome a shoulder injury to help lead Washington to the win.
Mike DeCourcy sums it up best as many Kentucky fans and NBA fans have the same question:
18 points, 13 assists, series-opening road win. Wonder what it will take for Cowherd to admit he's wrong?
