Andrea Bargnani became the latest victim of John Wall and his signature behind the back move on Saturday as Wall continued his December tear with 22 points, 13 assists and 2 blocks in a 111-96 win over the Nets – 4th in a row for the Wizards. The double-double was his 8th out of his last 9 games and for the month of December he’s averaging 23 points and 12 assists.
“John, again, is just playing at a fabulous clip right now,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. “His leadership on the floor, in the huddles, in the locker room, orchestrating things on the floor, that’s a thing of beauty.”
As fabulous as John has been playing, he’s 5th in All-Star voting among Eastern guards behind Wade, Kyrie Irving, Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler. His 103k votes is also below players like Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol.
