Wall Scores 24 In Summer League Debut

By Jesse Jones

Yes, it is only the NBA Summer League, where much of the players on the court are playing for roster spots, but to score 24 points and record 8 assists is still impresive, especially if it is your first game.  Well, John Wall did exactly that last night in the Washington Wizards’ 84-79 win last night.

In the beginning of the game, Wall played a little sloppy turning the ball over and at one point getting blocked going for a layup, but as the game went on, Wall took control of the game, scoring at will and being very vocal, commanding the offense and defense.  Wall went 7-15 from the field, and went a very impressive 10-11 from the free throw line.  Three of Wall’s eight assists were alley-oops to JaVale McGee, and one was an alley-oop to Raymar Morgan.

McGee, who is entering his third season in the league, is the front runner to become the starting center for the Wizards.  In his two seasons, McGee took a lot of heat for being too soft for his size, and it appears that he has listened.  McGee looks bigger and played more physical, scoring 21 points and securing 13 rebounds, something we’ve been waiting for.

John Wall has brought a lot of hype to the DC area, and big expectations for the future.  Last night, albeit in a summer league game, Wall lived up to the hype.  And what’s even better about all the hype, Cox Pavillion was sold out last night.  Just saying.
