THAT FLICKA DA WRIST!
With the Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers both having a rough few days leading up to the All-Star Break, John Wall is frantically playing at an MVP level to solidify his Washington Wizards as the hottest team in the NBA. Although they did lose an over-time thriller to the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, the DC collective have won 9 or their last 10 games and sit just two-and-half back from the Boston Celtics in getting the no. 2 overall seed in the Eastern Conference.
Last night, Washington played host to the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were just 48 hours removed from their emotional loss to Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors. We’re assuming they were still tired from the blowout defeat over weekend, because the at one point in the game, they were down 30 points. Mid-way through the third quarter, Wall put his stamp on the game, with no-look flick and between-the-legs passes to Otto Porter Jr. – twice.
Take a look at the highlights, as John got the Verizon Center rocking for their 120-98 victory.
