On Monday night John Wall went absolutely nuts. The No. 1 overall pick from the 2010 NBA Draft led the Washington Wizards past the Memphis Grizzlies by dropping a career-high 47 points. Wall also added seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and a block. Wall is obviously a serious talent, but his numbers have actually gone down each year after an excellent rookie season. But on Monday night he showed a confidence in his all-around game that has been lacking lately. Most importantly, Wall was willing to take – and make – the open jumpers the Grizzlies gave him. Check out the highlights after the jump. The Kentucky product finished Monday night’s game hitting 13-of-22 shots from the field, he was 2-of-4 from three-point range, and also made 19-of-24 free throws. Monday night showed that Wall has the potential to be one of the NBA’s best players if the 22-year-old can put it all together.
