The biggest reason the Washington Wizards look like they are finally going to return to playoffs is point guard John Wall. Wall is averaging 19.8 points, 8.6 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game. He was named to the All-Star team.
On Thursday night, the Toronto Raptors played host the Wizards and Wall’s skills were on display again. In the first overtime, he made an incredible play on both ends of the court.

Both teams entered the game over .500, the Raptors at 32-25 and the Wizards are 29-28. The Raptors are currently leading the Atlantic Division by five games over the Brooklyn Nets, putting them in fantastic position to earn home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Wizards have no chance of catching the Miami Heat in the Southeast Divison – they trail by 12.5 games. They do, however, have a shot at the four seed and home court advantage in their first round playoff series. They are currently the fifth seed and are just two games behind the Chicago Bulls for that fourth seed.
