Ah, Finally John Wall

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Saturday, January 12, 2013

John Wall made his season debut leading a replenished Wizards roster to their sixth win beating Atlanta 93-83 Saturday night in D.C.

It's the wizards first two game win streak of the year.

With Wall and Trevor Booker making their return from injury the Wizards roster was complete for the first time all season and it showed. Washington looked like a different team playing much better than their 6-28 record would suggest.

Wall scored 14 points in 20 minutes off the bench to go along with four assists. The Wizards are going to try to ease Wall back into action but if tonight is any indication, Wall looks like he is already at full speed. It's clear Wall gives this Wizards team another gear on offense.

Rookie Bradly Beal had another good game coming off his first career game winning shot Monday night against the Thunder. Beal had 16 points, three steals and four rebounds. Beal also seems to have his confidence at an all time high and rightfully so, the 19 year old has proved he can be a consistent scorer without John Wall, no he can really start to progress.

Martell Webster also continued his strong play scoring 15. A.J. Price was tied with Bradley Beal for leading the team in scoring with 16.

Jordan Crawford became the leading scorer in John Wall's absence but did not play tonight. Crawford is coming of a sprained ankle but it's hard to imagine where he will fit into Randy Wittman's offense now that he isn't the only scoring option.

It's clear John Wall could help turn the Wizards season around. Playoffs are still out of the question but with Wall, Nene and Booker all healthy for the first time, a lengthy win streak is not out of the question.
