(With the season being over and nearly a month gone by, we’ll continue to take a look at spectacular moments from a not-so spectacular Washington Wizards season)
After being down as much as 18 points in Los Angeles, the Washington Wizards would pull off a miraculous comeback in Hollywood, picking up their first road win in LA since 2006.
John Wall had somewhat of a breakout game against Kobe Bryant’s Lakers, scoring 24 points to go along side a career high 16 assists and just one turnover. Even though Dwight Howard made it tough for John Wall to get to the basket, John Wall continued to show his improved jump shot by knocking down shots from the perimeter.
To make matters worse for the Lakers, former Laker Trevor Ariza, played the best game of his season at Staples Center and helped the Wizards dig themselves out of an 18 point hole. Ariza knocked down 7 three pointers, many of which were assisted by John Wall, and finished with a game high- 25 points.
Even though the Wizards had struggled throughout the season, they continued to show their grit and toughness against some of the league’s elite, and managed to outperform the star studded Lakers.
This was definitely a game to look back on and be proud of.
