According to Basketball-Reference, Since 1983, only four players have ever put up a game where they’ve scored 52 points, had at least 8 assists, and at least 3 steals in regulation. A list which includes Michael Jordan and Steph Curry and now Washington Wizards point guard John Wall. Only problem is the Wizards lost to the Orlando Magic 124-116.
How big was Wall’s night?
- The most by a Wizards player since Gilbert Arenas scored 54 against the Suns on Dec. 22, 2006.
- The most scored by a Wizards’ player or a Wizards’ opponent at the Verizon Center
- One more point than the Magic starters scored combined.
However, a big night for the Magic bench with scored 73 of the teams 124 points was more than enough for the win.
