“Well, Paul (Pierce) had a joke at halftime,” said John Wall. “He said: ‘Let me get a rest. Let’s get it to like 25, so I can take a break.’ “
The Wizards only outscored the Heat by 6 points and “only” won by 21 but that was still good enough for Pierce who only had to play 20 minutes.
As for Wall, he had 18 points and a game-high 13 assists in just 32 minutes. The 13 assists were 1 more than the entire Heat team for the game and 3 more than the Heat after 3 quarters.
