After being ejected for two technical fouls the game before, the Wizards’ John Wall came back with a vengeance in route to a career high 47 points vs the Grizzlies Monday night. With the Wiz down to only 9 players for the game due to injury, it was pretty clear who was going to take on most of the scoring load for Washington. Wall finished the game going 13-22 from the floor, including 2-4 from three point range, and was 19-24 from the free throw line. He even commented to Comcast Sportsnet’s Chris Miller that he could have had 52 if he made the 5 free throws he missed.
As you can see above, he wasn’t just out there chucking up shots. Wall also finished with 7 rebounds, 8 assists to go along with a block and a steal.
