Washington Wizards' John Wall Hits Career High Five Three Pointers In First Win of Year

John Wall was looking on point tonight and he set his new career high in three pointers made in a game.

“When we play like this, we showed we can beat good teams,” Bradley Beal said. “We know they’re a comeback team and we did a good job.”

Wall was happy that they were able to keep their execution at a high level down the stretch, and hopefully this is the beginning of a playoff push. The start to the year was not acceptable and the effort level was simply not high enough to merit victories.

“We withstood some stretches and we didn’t succumb,” head coach Randy Wittman said. “We didn’t put our heads down. We sustained. I didn’t see any guys down.”

If Wall can keep shooting like this though? Then you are looking at an All Star folks, and one who can hopefully lead his team back to the promised land. It has been quite a long time and it would be some much needed hope for DC sports fans. With Robert Griffin III’s knee brace and all it has been tough going for all those folks.

That is all for today folks, but for you college basketball fans out there be sure to tune in for my coverage of the Champion’s Classic doubleheader on November 12th, which is amazingly only six days away now. Thanks for reading and check back in with us tomorrow if you are so inclined or reclined even.
