John Wall scored 21 points with four assists, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two triples on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Wizards from falling behind 3-2 in their Round 2 series against the Celtics.
Wall took some ill advised shots in this one, going just 7-of-17 from the floor, but was the most consistent player in a Wizards uniform. His low assist total can be largely blamed on the poor shooting of his teammates, who struggled to convert open looks as the Celtics opened up an insurmountable lead. Wall did do a good job keeping Isaiah Thomas in check, but Al Horford and Avery Bradly roasted the Wizards for easy buckets. Wall will need to be locked in on Friday if the Wizards hope to extend their season beyond Game 6.
