Congrats to John Wall, who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week today. Last week, Wall averaged 18.3 points, 11.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.3 blocks per game in the Wizards’ four wins. It was an emotional week for Wall, who lost his 6-year-old friend Miyah to cancer. Wall dedicated his 26-point, 17-assist performance last Monday night to Miyah and her family. As Wall goes, the Wizards go, and right now, they’re in first place in the Southeast division.
Wall’s not the only former Cat on fire. Right now, he’s one of three Cats on the NBA stats leaderboard:
I expect DeMarcus Cousins will return to the leaderboard when he returns to the court Thursday after battling viral meningitis.
