"John [Wall] was truly amazing. I'm glad that he had a game like that. He kind of backed what I posted on Twitter a few days ago," Gortat said after the game. "He is definitely the top point guard in the league right now. He is playing tremendous basketball. His finishes around the rim are crazy but he is capable of doing that. As a team we just play better every time he is leading the right way" Bullets Forever

Six-year-old Miyah had lost her battle with cancer, and Wall, who had befriended the girl months earlier, was disconsolate. In a postgame interview, he was unable to hide his grief: Miyah (full name: Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson) was diagnosed in October 2013 with a form of cancer known as Burkitt’s lymphoma. Her relationship with Wall began this past March, after the guard heard about her desire to meet Nicki Minaj. Wall pitched in with the effort, and along the way he and Miyah became pals.

Point guard John Wall was the engine in the Wizards’ crisp, fluid offense Monday. His passing — he finished with 13 assists — triggered superb ball movement. He worked well with center Marcin Gortat in the pick and roll and Gortat joked he deserved the credit for Wall’s success. “We just had this little conversation on the court,” said Gortat, who finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season. “I might be wrong, but I’m always saying I’m going to bring every point guard to the promised land and I think I brought him to the promised land today.” Washington Post

Wall’s boss, however, was more than pleased with his showing Saturday. Coach Randy Wittman complimented Wall’s defensive pressure, which he credited for heading Washington’s stingy team defense, and was happy with Wall’s pace offensively. The problem, Wittman insisted, was that others weren’t running with the speedy point guard. “Loved John’s game today,” Wittman said. “I always try to tell you guys you can’t read into the stats stuff. I thought John was fabulous… I thought his pace was good. We just didn’t have anybody running with him and sometimes when you see that happen you’re going to stop running. So I thought that John had a really good, solid game for us.” Washington Post

“We’ve all seen the new commercial, John,” NBA TV’s Matt Winer said to Wall on Wednesday night. “You probably have a personal chef, so maybe this doesn’t apply to you in the real world. But if there were a Wall’s Wings and Burgers out there in the real world, would you be a wing guy or a burger guy?” “I haven’t had a burger in three years,” Wall said. “So I’d be a wing guy. But I know all my family, they’d be on the burger side.” Washington Post
