NBA Honors Wall
Wizards guard John Wall has been selected as the Eastern Conference player of the week by the NBA. It is the second time Wall has been honored, receiving the award in March. Wall is the only Washington player to be so honored since Antawn Jamison in 2008.
Through the week ending Sunday, Wall led Washington to three wins in four games, averaging 24.3 points, 8.5 assists and 2.75 steals, while averaging nearly 40 minutes per contest. Wall began the week with back to back double-doubles in wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers. Wall closed out the week with back to back 30 point efforts in a loss to the Toronto Raptors and a win over the New York Knicks. Perhaps the most impressive numbers were Wall’s shooting percentages for the week, .617 from the floor, .800 from three point range and .857 from the charity stripe.
