Forty seconds of funk
John Wall has pulled off some amazing plays throughout the preseason, and Thursday night was no different, as the No. 1 overall pick recorded the first double-double of the meaningless portion of the schedule. Ben Golliver, blogger for CBSSports and Blazersedge.com, was quite impressed by Wall -- and he only needed 40 seconds to be sold.
In the first quarter of the Wizards' 96-88 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Wall had a 40-second stretch in which he had two assists, two points and a steal. He set up Kirk Hinrich for a three-pointer in the corner, grabbed a loose ball and fed Cartier Martin for a reverse layup, then recorded a steal and two handed dunk, adding a pull-up on the rim for good measure.
As for finishing with 15 points and 11 assists to get the double-double, Wall wasn't all that impressed. "It means, to me, nothing if we don't get the win," he said. "That's the key point...come in to help the team as much as I can; lead the team like Coach wants me to do right now, try to get the win. It's great to have a double-double but doesn't mean anything. I think we took a step back."
