John Wall Viciously Rejects Iman Shumpert As The Wizards Beat Knicks

New York has not won¬†a game since Nov. 13 at Atlanta and Washington’s John Wall kept it that way as the Wizards defended their home court against the struggling Knicks.

The defensive play of the game went to Wall, who with about 28 seconds remaining in regulation and with 98-89 lead over the Knicks, denied Iman Shumpert’s layup with a vicious block.

On offense, Wall was even more relentless, scoring 37 points on 15-of-21 shooting.

“I was able to knock down shots, but it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t come away with a win,” Wall said.

Wall registered 30 or more points in consecutive games for the first time in his NBA career, after scoring 37 in  Toronto on Friday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft also had seven assists.
