John Wall might have gotten away with a travel on this move and the whistle was a little late. But the Cavs can’t blame the refs for the rest of John Wall’s performance on Tuesday: Wall had a game-high and season-high 35 points along with 10 assists and 5 steals in a 97-85 victory over LeBron James and the Cavs. The loss is the first home loss for the Cavs this season.
“We didn’t do a very good job with him regardless of who was guarding him, let’s be honest,” Blatt said. “The guy had a great game.”
It was a great response game for Wall who has been criticized a lot this season for being passive and his shooting % (39).
“I read everything, I hear everything that people say, because I like it,” Wall said. “You’ve got to take the criticism if you’re going to take the praise.”
