Last night, John Wall and the Washington Wizards embarrassed the Indiana Pacers 102-79 in Bankers Life Fieldhouse, led by Wall’s 27 points, 5 assists, and 5 rebounds, as well as Polish big man Marcin Gortat’s 31 points and 16 boards.
Wall, who had shot a combined 16-51 (.314) from the field in the series’ first four games, finally regained his shooting touch and connected on 11-20 (.550) from the floor. After blowing a 19-point lead in Game 4, the Wizards avoided elimination tonight in Game 5’s must-win road situation. The Pacers now lead the series 3-2.
