And just like that, John Wall has his Washington Wizards at .500 on the season at 14-14. Think about that. Granted, he’s not a one man team but fresh off signing his max deal, he has delivered the goods. He’s arguably the best PG in the NBA and last night he played like it. In 38 minutes he went for 29 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2 steals. On the otherside of the court, Josh Harrelson’s Pistons are on the rise in the East. He only played 3 minutes but had a rebound and assist.
New Orleans Pelicans-110
Portland Trail Blazers-108
In a close contest, Anthony Davis dominated the hot team out West for the impressive to move within one game of .500 on the season. And by dominated I mean, DOMINATED. He showed yet again how he helped Kentucky to the 2012 National Championship and the #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. Teamed with Jrue Holiday this combo continues to get better and will have the Pelicans in the playoffs in a year or two at this rate. He finished wiht 27 points on 13-19 with 12 rebounds, an assist, and 5 blocks. DOMINATION.
Los Angeles Clippers-88
Bledsoe and his Phoenix Suns fared a good bit better in this game than they have in recent days though Bledsoe didn’t score much though he was on the court among the longest. The bench really carried them, mainly Gerald Green with 21 and Markieff Morris with 11 but Archie Goodwin didn’t get in on the scoring action in his 18 minutes. He finished with 3 rebounds, an assist, steal and block. Bledsoe played 31 minutes and didn’t force anything, though he went 3-10 for 7 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals.
42 games into the seasona and the Jazz finally win their 10th game. Hardly a shock considering their line up isn’t loaded with superstars or a fantastic coach but they are young so there’s still hope. Enes hasn’t found the floor much since being demoted from a starter and tonight wasn’t much different though his Jazz did get the win. In 14 minutes he finished with 4 points, 7 rebounds and an assist.
With both teams having down seasons, and the former Kentucky Wildcats on both teams struggling all season. The Grizz’s Tayshaun Prince has been a starter much of the season but his production has been very low, as it was last night. In his 20 minutes he was 1-2 for 3 points and 2 rebounds. In those 20 minutes, however, he was a +3 point differential. Nazr Mohammed was the only Wildcat to go for the Bulls but managed 2 rebounds, a steal and block in his paltry 4 minutes.
