|Washington Wizards coach Scott Brooks knew John Wall would be back to his explosive Sean Monahan Jersey , elite self for the playoffs when the All-Star point guard was able to play 38 minutes in a regular-season loss at Cleveland.
It took Wall one additional outing to be absolutely certain he’ d be OK after coming back from surgery on his left knee, pointing to his 29-point, 12-assist effort against Boston five days later.
”I had a big game,” he said Monday, looking back at that victory from a couple of weeks ago. ”Kind of just started to see shots fall that I was falling short on the couple of games I had before that.”
As Wall prepares to lead the No. 8 seed Wizards into Game 5 against the No. 1 seed Raptors on Wednesday night in Toronto, it is as if he never was away for more than two months. As if he never needed that operation in the first place. As if he got a chance to ramp up for the postseason for more than merely four games.
And all of that outside chatter about whether Washington might just be better off without him, based on the team going 8-2 at the start of his absence in January and February, sure seems silly right about now. Especially after Wall carried Washington to a 106-98 victory in Game 4 on Sunday night by scoring eight of the host’s last 14 points and adding an assist – plus tight defense on DeMar DeRozan – after Bradley Beal fouled out with about five minutes left.
Did it while playing all 24 minutes in the second half, too. Plus, Wall revealed Monday that he twisted his right ankle down the stretch Authentic Max Domi Jersey , although he declared himself fine.
”It’s always pulling teeth to try to get him off the court,” Brooks said. ”I like that. As a coach, you want that.”
Now Washington will need to grab a victory on the road at least once to claim a series in which the home team has won every game so far.
”You put John Wall on this team for 82 games,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said, ”and I guarantee they wouldn’t be eighth.”
Instead, Wall appeared in only 41 games this season, missing all four that Washington played against Toronto. But he sure is looking good when the games count the most.
He is averaging 26.8 points, 13 assists and 4.8 rebounds in the series.
And here’ s an obscure, yet telling, stat offered up by the Wizards: Wall joined Magic Johnson as the only players with at least 27 points Authentic Alexander Radulov Jersey , 14 assists and six rebounds in two consecutive playoff games.
”It was just a matter of time before he got back to himself,” Wizards forward Markieff Morris said. ”He just needed to get some games under his belt. Basically, just get his feet under him, get his wind back, and he would get back to how he was playing. Because he’s a competitor.”
That aspect of Wall’ s persona came out when he was trading barbs with Canadian rapper Drake during the series’ first two games in Toronto, when the Raptors were taking a 2-0 lead.
”I told him to be here for Game 3. He told me he was going to be here. Didn’t show up. He told me we were getting swept and he had the broom for us,” Wall said. ”I wanted him to know they weren’t going to sweep us.”

Aaron Jones now has a name to go with the photo that went viral on Twitter. Nancee Lingg, 82, is a grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of nine who was traveling from Harlingen, Texas http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-evgeny-kuznetsov-jersey , to Appleton, Wisconsin, when her path randomly crossed with the Packers running back.
Lingg didn’t realize Jones played in the NFL. Her daughter-in-law, Jackie Lingg, thought Jones worked at the airport as he wheeled Nancee Lingg to the waiting family.
鈥淢y mom thought he worked for the airlines, which is pretty funny,鈥?Teresa Lingg, Nancee’s granddaughter, said, via Wes Hodkiewicz of the team website. 鈥淚t was really cool. He seems like a standup guy. My mom and grandma both said Jeff Carter Jersey , 鈥楬e must have been raised very well.鈥欌€?/p>
Nancee’s husband of 61 years died in February, and the Lingg family will travel to Texas for his memorial service this weekend.
Jones, meanwhile, now knows the name of his biggest fan.
鈥淚鈥檒l tell you, it brings a big smile to my face when it comes across my phone,鈥?Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. 鈥淚鈥檓 thankful that everybody else is getting to see what I get to see pretty much every day. This is a tremendous locker room. We鈥檝e been very fortunate and blessed with the caliber of character that we have in our locker room. So when things like that are expressed, especially on social media, it brings a smile to my face.
鈥淚鈥檓 sure obviously he probably didn鈥檛 even know someone took that picture. That鈥檚 just the type of guy he is.鈥?/p> Authentic Atlanta Falcons Jerseys
