John Wall Says He'll Be 'Even Better' Next Game After 22-Point Return  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 1, 2021 6:27 am

John Wall had 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists in the Houston Rockets' 122-119 win over the Sacramento Kings. 


The win represented Wall's first regular-season appearance in 735 days.


"Having 22, 9 and 6 is not bad for my first game in two years. I can pat myself on the back for that, and I know that I'll be even better for the next game," said Wall after the game.


Christian Wood, who added 21 points and 12 rebounds, said that Wall "looks like he's back in his All-Star mode."


Stephen Silas said that Wall and James Harden are still learning how to play with each other. 


"They haven't been together, and we're still trying to figure it out -- who has it and who's playing off the ball some. They're kind of figuring it out on their own with my help. That relationship has to grow and get better and better."

I wouldn't be surprised If Harden ends up staying in Houston

Wall-Harden redux!

These two go way back. I am confident the pair will work marvellously.
