WALL GOES FOR 4th CAREER TRIPLE-DOUBLE WITH CAREER HIGH IN REBOUNDS
The Washington Wizards were beaten by double-digits at home against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, but there was some positives to take away. Then interim head coach Don Newman told the players after the loss that they will be successful if they play “like this and put it on the floor.” John Wall agreed by saying Washington would win 10 out of 10 games, since they won’t play the Warriors again, if they play with the energy they did. For the first time Dec. 9, Bradley Beal returned to the Wizards starting lineup.
Washington got off to a great start in the first quarter to take a commanding 20-point lead behind their best offensive performance to start a game. From there they hardly looked back, although they allowed Philadelphia to get back within single digits during a turnover filled stretch. Behind John Wall’s fourth career triple-double performance including a career high 13 rebounds, the Wizards cruised to a 106-94 victory.
