John Wall played his
first second game of the season for the Wizards Monday, and it was a rather eventful one. Let’s begin here, with this gorgeous crossover that sent Ish Smith of the Magic tumbling to the court.
It must have been revenge for earlier, on a bizarre play that should go down as one of the best defensive plays of the season: Smith leaps over a ducking Wall in the lane, and then Wall thinks he has an easy bucket. But Smith recovers quickly to block Wall’s shot. The Wizards won, 120-91, and Wall had 12 points and six assists in 20 minutes.
