What Had Happened Was: 1/20/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
No, John Wall was not named a starter for the Eastern Conference in the NBA All-Star Game, but on Thursday night, he decided to show off for the folks at home who didn’t vote for him.
The Washington Wizards guard had 29 points, 13 assists and scored the team’s final four points in the last 32 seconds as the Wiz Kids beat the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, 113-110. Wall received a large contribution to the collection plate from forward Otto Porter Jr., who nailed six 3-pointers for the second-straight night and chipped in 23 points in the victory.
John Wall. Clutch. Wow. #DCFamily
