On a night when the Washington Wizards celebrated the 35th anniversary of the franchise's only championship, John Wall played like someone who might someday carry on that legacy, scoring 37 points in a display of speed and flair Saturday to lead the Washington Wizards to a 104-85 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
Wall made 16 of 25 shots, throwing his palms up after making an improbable 14-foot sideways runner and flexing his muscles to the fans on the first row after banking in a fast-break layup. He even blocked a layup attempt by Roy Hibbert, the 6-foot-4 point guard rising to swat the ball away from the 7-foot-2 Pacers center.
Wall also had five assists, four rebounds and two blocks for the lottery-bound Wizards, who have won nine straight at home and are 18-4 at the Verizon Center this season when he's on the floor.
They were especially motivated to put on a good show Saturday night, with Wes Unseld, Elvin Hayes and the other members of the 1978 team on hand for a hal...

Wall believes “When you’re feeling good, you’re playing good” and it [...]
BOSTON — Prior to every game, the two high-definition TVs in the home locker room at TD Garden typically show video of the Celtics’ previous matchup with that night’s opponent. Some players, like Jeff Green and Brandon Bass, watch raptly while others hardly pay attention. But the TVs almost always show Celtics and their opponent, even if the last meeting was months ago.

Good win for the Celtics. It was great to see the long awaited starting line up with KG and Green in it. Poor Tommy gets at lot of flack just for loving the Celtics. And he should love them. They are his team. Kudos to Wall and the Wizards for actually trying to win games and not tanking. Enjoy today's comments.
Wasn't expecting Crawford to act that way Oh...

The Boston Celtics defeated the Washington Wizards 107 to 96 tonight at the TD Garden. Pierce and Garnett both returned to the lineup, which gave the entire team a nice boost. This win was a full team win, as 5 players scored in double figures and 3 more almost did. Flat-out the Wizards were no match for the Celtics talent. KG was sharp in his return to the court, but the leader...
