John Wall Goes Off Against Timberwolves

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall filled up the stat sheet against the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves with his old coach Flip Saunders on the opposing side. Posting a healthy 21 points, 17 assists and four rebounds.

“He was a kid when I had him, a baby,” Saunders said. “He’s turned into a man now. When I had him earlier he thought he had to prove he can shoot. He thought he had to prove those things. Now he doesn’t have to prove those things. He’s got a contract. It’s his team. And what he does is he makes everybody better.”

The 17 dimes was a career-high for wall and it also matched the entire assists total of the Timberwolves. Wall is off to a fantastic start to the season with 15 double-doubles under his belt already.
