Wall scored 14 points and handed out 4 assists in 21 minutes on Saturday as Washington defeated the Atlanta Hawks 93-83 in his season debut. Monday the Orlando Magic were in [...]

I can confidently say that this is the first Ish Smith post that we've attempted on That NBA Lottery Pick and he had to do something pretty impressive to earn it.Earlier tonight, the Orlando Magic guard was playing some solid defense on Wizards guard John Wall.As he went up to attempt a block, Ish cleared Wall and leapt over him:
When you hear the Wizards and Magic are facing off against each other, you wouldn’t expect the highlights of the night to cone from that came. But that’s exactly what happened. First watch Ish Smith leap over John Wall and then recover and block his shot. But John Wall wasn’t going to go out like [...]
Yesterday, we posted a video of Orlando Magic guard Ish Smith leaping over Wizards guard John Wall and blocking his shot.Well, later in that game...Mr. Wall got revenge by dropping Ish with a pretty solid crossover that sent him to the ground and gave John the opportunity to find Kevin Seraphin for the easy bucket:
Wizards 93, Hawks 83 [Saturday]
***JOHN WALL BACK! In something of a surprise return (a surprise to me, at least — I had no idea he was about to come back), Wall helped his Wizards achieve their first win streak (two games) of the season with a 21-minute, 14-point contribution (5-11, 4 AST/3 TO) off the bench. It was a feel-good game for the Wizards in more ways than one, as...
Wizards PG John Wall’s second game resulted in the another win. The team’s third straight win at home and second consecutive win over the Orlando Magic, a 120-91 win vs Magic. The Wizards are now 2-1 against the Magic this year but more importantly, they feel as though they’re beginning to gel. Wall’s return has given these [...]
Two things happened last night for the Washington Wizards that had not happened all season -- and both of them were good. First, point guard John Wall made his season debut after missing the first 33 games of the season with a stress injury to his knee. Second, the Wizards finally won back-to-back games, the last NBA team to do so this season.
The Wizards downed the Atlanta...
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Another brick
Washington is trying to shut the naysayers up.
The Wizards have the worst record in the league. They have pundits claiming they have no one to build around. They have an apathetic fan base that has not experienced much in the way of winning for easily the last...
WASHINGTON -- It took longer than expected, but John Wall is back. Just in case not everybody on the court was already aware of this, the electric point guard excitedly let them know. Wall scored 14 points in his season debut, Bradley Beal and A.J. Price each had 16 points and the Washington Wizards won consecutive games for the first time this season with a 93-83 win over the...

This one was locked up pretty early for me. In John Wall’s return, Martell Webster was the Wizards MVP (see what I did there?). He started off the game with a quick six points as he and Nene scored the Wizards first 12 points. Webster’s...
John Wall gave his teammates a lift with 14 points and four assists in his first game of the season, and the worst-in-NBA Washington Wizards have their first winning streak after a 93-83 victory Saturday night over the Atlanta Hawks.
Wall's playing time will be limited as he returns from a knee injury, but he appeared to have his old speed and explosiveness back while playing...
The return of John Wall even in limited minutes has seemed to ignite the Washington Wizards, who are on the verge of a four-game winning streak that would double their previous win total.
Accomplishing that feat requires beating the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night to begin their five-game, eight-day western road trip.
One game after rookie Bradley Beal hit a jumper with 0.3...

As has been the case for quite some time now, the Washington Wizards have long been considered the league clowns of the NBA. There’s really no need for clarification as the factors for the team’s prolonged suckassness has been on full display and well documented: slow starts, slow finishes, offensive ineptitude, defensive struggles, lack of talent, poor coaching, managerial mishaps...
