Former Kentucky Wildcats John Wall and Darius Miller both set career high’s in scoring against some tough competition. Wall dropped 47 points in a 107-94 win against the Memphis Grizzlies. Replacing the injured Eric Gordon, Darius Miller made the start for the Hornets, and scored 16 points in a 110-86 win.
John Wall started the season on the bench with a knee injury. In the Wizards last game, he was sitting on the bench with 2 technical fouls. Wall posted the 3rd highest point total in the NBA this season, along with 8 assists and 7 rebounds. He shot 13 of 22 from the field, and made 19 of 24 from the free-throw line. Perhaps most notably, Wall is known mostly as abysmal at best from beyond the arc. Since returning from the knee injury on January 12th, Wall is shooting at a 50% clip from the 3.
Darius Miller aided the short-handed Hornets in snapping the Denver Nuggets 15-game winning streak, scoring 16 points and going 4 of 5 from 3-point range. Former Kentucky teammate of Miller, Anthony Davis was saddled with foul trouble for most of the game. Davis finished with 14 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists.

After being ejected for two technical fouls the game before, the Wizards’ John Wall came back with a vengeance in route to a career high 47 points vs the Grizzlies Monday night. With the Wiz down to only 9 players for the game due to injury, it was pretty clear who was going to take on most of the scoring load for Washington. Wall finished the game going 13-22 from the floor, including...
Everyone is talking about how much of a threat John Wall has become. The man has blazing speed. He may be one of, if not, the fastest player in the league. Scouts and Agents (see David Falk) have been hard on John Wall, as there was one grave aspect that was lacking in his game.
It WAS his jump shot.
Yes, WAS and not IS. Amazing isn’t it?
Recently, Wall has been...
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall, has been making a lot of bold statements both on and off the court this season.
There was his “beef” with NBA agent David Faulk, after he questioned his ability to be a top tier point guard. It wasn’t that long ago he proclaimed himself a max contract player, although, if one was to look at the totality of his career, his premise...
Tweet Washington Wizards point guard and former number one overall pick John Wall believes he is worth max contract money, and he has been proving it with his play lately. The latest example is him scoring a career-high 47 points Monday night in a Wizards victory over the Grizzlies. Here are the highlights: Wall has [...]
It must be hard to be one of the elite talents in the NBA and be stuck on a poor team like the Washington Wizards. So when he gets a nasty elbow like the one that Klay Thompson from the Warriors gave him Saturday it is understandable that he be a little upset.
What is not understandable is how he can keep running his mouth long after the play is done that the refs feel till the...

I feel just the way Randy Wittman did when trying to open up his post-game presser after tonight's game.
