The Wizards are playoff bound for the first time since 2008 and the biggest reason is the play of John Wall who was a senior in high school the last time the Wizards were talking about the playoffs.
Wall had 20 points 8 assists and a few impressive highlights including a reverse dunk and sick chasedown block in a big 91-78 win over the frustrated Indiana Pacers.
Paul George only made 6 of 22 shots and complained after the game about the lack of calls.
“It’s just crazy,” George said. “We played against a team the other night where if you breathe on the guy (LeBron James) you know he went to the line. I’m not saying I’m that caliber player, but it’s just frustrating.”
Roy Hibbert also struggled (8 points 2 rebounds) while the Wizard’s Polish Hammer put up 17 points and 12 rebounds.
“I’m tired of talking about it,” said Hibbert, who went 3-for-8 from the field and had only two rebounds. “We’ve been in this rut for a month. I don’t know. I’ve made my suggestions. You take one step forward and three steps back. One game, and then we play like this. … We’ve talked about that for great length amongst ourselves, private team meetings, all that (stuff), and I don’t know.”
