After earning consecutive victories over the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets over the weekend, it’s safe to say the Washington Wizards will finally be back in the postseason.
The Wizards are now 35-31, good for fifth in the Eastern Conference.
Wizards’ point guard John Wall, who has never won more than 29 games in a season before this year, is happy to finally be on a playoff team.
“We’re finally over 29 wins! It’s been fun,” Wall said with a smile via Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders. “But like I’ve been saying for awhile, we’re far from finalizing our playoff spot. We still have a long way to go. We still have 17 games left, I think, and if you lose 10 in a row or something like that, you could be out of the playoffs. So we’re trying to stay level-headed, we haven’t gotten locked in to a spot right now so we need to keep competing and fighting because there are a lot of great teams that are right behind us.”
Wall, who was named to the All-Star team this season, is averaging 19.8 points, 8.7 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game.
