2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

With one more month until the 2016 NBA playoffs start, the race in both the East and West is as close as ever. The 8th and the 9th seed in the East are separated by half a game, with the 6th seed also only two games in front of the 9th seed. In the West, the difference between the 8th and 9th seed is only two games, making the stretch run extremely interesting. Here are six teams that should become more and more interesting as the 2016 NBA playoffs approach.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons went all in at the trade deadline, getting Tobias Harris from Orlando Magic to form a “mini Big-Three” with Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Harris. And while some people expected quick results, in reality, Detroit is playing 50% basketball since the trade. But that might be a good thing. The good news for the Pistons is they have only seven more games on the road. But the bad news is they have lots of games against direct competition, starting with two games against the Wizards, a game against Chicago, two against the Hornets, and then some against higher tier Eastern teams: 2 against Atlanta, two against Miami, and one against Cleveland. The Wizards game are crucial since Washington leads the season series 2:0, and one more win will ensure the Wizards the tiebreaker. Detroit Pistons tickets for the 2016 NBA playoffs games start at just $35.00 per ticket.

Washington Wizards

Speaking of the Wizards, they are 2 and a half games outside of the playoff picture, but they can make up ground by beating the Pistons. Detroit is not in the playoffs, but they are just half a game behind Chicago for the 8th spot. The biggest challenge for the Wizards will be the Atlanta Hawks, as they have three more games against the 5th best team in the East at the moment. The good news, however, is they have several games against bottom feeders left: 2 against the Nets, one versus Phoenix, one versus Lakers, one versus Knicks, and one versus Sixers. Get Washington Wizards tickets for their 2016 NBA playoff games today.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls got Jimmy Butler back, but it might be too late. Sitting at the 8th spot, with just half a game lead is not something that Chicago envisioned at any point during the season. The Bulls were supposed to fight with Cleveland for East supremacy, but that hasn’t happened yet. And it doesn’t get easier down the road with only eight home games left. Opponent-wise, the Bulls have one more game against the Cavs, one against the Raptors, two versus the Heat, one with the Pistons, one with Indiana, one with San Antonio and one with Washington. The silver lining is that the Bulls will decide their fate, with games against direct opponents like Washington, Indiana, and Detroit. Chicago Bulls schedule for their 2016 NBA Playoffs games at the United Center start at just $85.00 per ticket.

Portland Trail Blazers

Let’s start with the good news. The Blazers are currently at the 6th spot in the West, despite losing every player of their starting lineup from last season not named Damian Lillard. They have no chance of getting the 5th spot, but staying at 6 is a very plausible scenario. Now, for the bad news. Take a look at their schedule: 2 more versus Golden State, two more versus OKC, one versus San Antonio, one versus Clippers. That is six games against the top 4 teams in the West. And to top it that, they have two more games against Dallas, a team that is just half a game behind them in the standings. The Blazers will likely make the playoffs, but staying at 6th spot gives them a chance against an OKC team that doesn’t look as scary as the Warriors and Spurs. Portland Trail Blazers tickets for the 2016 NBA Playoffs begin at just $25.00 per ticket.

Atlanta Hawks February Schedule

Atlanta Hawks February Schedule Of NBA Games

The Atlanta Hawks February Schedule is very kind to them. While there are duels with the top teams in both conferences, there are also duels with bottom feeders such as Minnesota and Boston. Atlanta has managed to win almost all of their games following Thanksgiving, losing only twice since then, but the real test is still ahead. The top spot in the East is nearly wrapped up. Even though they’re almost 40 games to be played, the Hawks have a huge lead of 7+ games, and they are likely to fall.

The Hawks February Schedule of games at the Philips Center is averaging $105.00 per ticket. Hawks average ticket prices are up 16.66% since the January 1st. Atlanta is looking to have a much better February in the 2014-15 than last season. In the 2013-14 Hawks February schedule of games, they went 2-10.

The Hawks February schedule looks like this

.

Wizards @ Hawks Phillips Arena February 4
Starting price $16, Average price $40
The Wizards are the second best team in the East, but the Hawks have already spanked them twice, both home and on the road. However, the duel between the top two teams in the conference is always appealing, and who knows, Washington might finally find a way to beat Atlanta. The task starts on the defensive end, where the Hawks get too many open looks and transition points.

Warriors @ Hawks Phillips Arena February 6th
Starting price $111 | Average price $150
The duel everyone waits for will finally happen. Nobody expected the Warriors and the Hawks to be the top teams at this point of the season. However, the two teams are playing the best basketball at the moment. Both teams are in the midst of a great winning streak. Who will win the first duel between the two? We will surely find out and then wait for their next duel in March.

Hawks @ Celtics TD Garden February 11th
Starting price $17 | Average price $37
As mention, the Hawks February Schedule includes few games versus easy opponents. The Celtics are one of those teams that might come as a welcome breather for the Hawks. Even though Boston is playing good lately, winning three of the past four games, Boston is not a team that can scare the Hawks off. This game is also one of the few road games the Hawks play in February.

Raptors @ Hawks Phillips Arena February 20th
Starting price $31 | Average price $88
The Raptors are the only team to beat the Hawks two times this season. Additionally, the Raptors are also one of the few teams to score 100+ points two times versus the Hawks. Toronto was the best team in the East a month ago, but the Hawks have gotten the first spot, and even made a huge difference that it will be hard for anyone to catch them. The duel will feature an interesting battle at the point guard position, where Teague will be tested versus Kyle Lowry.

Mavericks @ Hawks Phillips Arena February 25th
Starting price $27 | Average price $45
The Mavs are the second-best offensive team in the league, and will surely pose a challenge for the defence of the Hawks. The first matchup between the two teams was a close one, with Atlanta winning 105 – 102. The Mavs had Rondo back then, but he is now more adapted to his role in the offense and defense.

Wizards February Schedule

Wizards February Schedule Of NBA Games 2015

The Wizards enter a crucial month for their season. February is a short month, with a week rest during the NBA All-Star game (for those who do not participate), but a significant month. Teams usually gain steam after the break, and Wizards are one of those teams that could use the time off. The Wizards could also use a push in the standings, as they are currently ranked second behind Atlanta, but they are closely followed by the Raptors, Bulls and Cavaliers. Being second allows the Wizards to have a home-court advantage up until the East Finals.

In the 2014 Wizards February schedule, they went 8-5 in their 13 games. The Wizards averaged 105.2 points a game. In 2013 the Wizards went 7-5 averaging 94.9 points a game. In 2012 they went 3-11 and averaged 98.6 points. Each of their last three seasons the Wizards February schedules of games they have averaged the most points of any month.

Wizards February schedule ticket prices since the 2012 season have been $68.00 per ticket on average. The 2014/15 season is no different as the average ticket price for games Wizards tickets is $67.00 per ticket.

The Washington Wizards February Schedule will include six home games at the Verizon Center DC. The Wizards February Schedule of road games will consist of six away games.

Five key games in the Wizards February Schedule.

Wizards @ Hawks, Philips Arena, February 4,
Starting price $22, Average price $40
Everything points towards the Hawks being the best team in the East. While many assumed that the road to the Finals in the East would go through Chicago and Cleveland, Atlanta is playing the best basketball in the league right now. Additionally, the Atlanta Hawks won the first two duels between the teams, so it is time for the Wizards to show their worth.

Wizards @ Raptors, Air Canada Center, February 11,
Starting price $36, Average price $55
The first duel between the two teams finished with a big win for the Toronto Raptors. They will meet by the end of January in Washington, and their duel in Toronto will be the last before the playoffs. Simply put, the Wizards could use a win to get some separation for the second seed in the East. They currently lead the Raptors by 1.5 games.

Washington Wizards February ScheduleCavaliers @ Wizards, Verizon Center, February 20,
Starting price $66, Average price $117
It has been a while since the Cavs and the Wizards were rivals. Back in the time Gilbert Arenas was running the show. Now, the Wizards will try to hold on for the second seed in the East. The Cavaliers are gaining steam, and Lebron James is playing at an MVP level after sleeping the first half of the season. This will be the first game after the All Star break, so both teams should be well rested.

Warriors @ Wizards, Verizon Center, February 24,
Starting price $36, Average price $48
The best team in the league comes to town, as John Wall and his buddy Bradley Beal go against the Golden State Warriors Splash Brothers. Wall announced he and Beal are the best backcourt in the league before the season started. He will have the chance to prove it. The Wizards might find it hard to score versus the best defence in the league, and they will have their hands full on the other end as well.

Wizards @ Timberwolves, Target Center, February 25,
Starting price $7, Average price $16
Even the best teams can slip versus a bad team. The risk is always there. For Washington, this is a chance for an easy win against the Timberolves, after playing the Warriors the previous night. However, travelling from one coast to another, and then playing a game on the road is never easy. That is the challenge for the Wizards in this game.

Chicago Bulls Ticket Price Drops 14.6% in 2015

It took few months, but the Bulls look like the championship contender everyone envisioned them to be. Derrick Rose is as healthy as ever, he is relentless to the basket, the signing of Pau Gasol is the most underrated signing of the summer, and Jimmy Butler is arguably the best player on the team and one of the top 10-15 in the league. Tom Thibodeau is still manning the sidelines, expecting and demanding perfection and effort from his players, and the results are finally showing on the scoreboard. Their defence is not up to the level we are accustomed to seeing, but their offence is top notch. With that being said, the season is long, and the following five are some of the most important games for the Bulls.

The Chicago Bulls have moved into first place in attendance at the United Center with an average of 21,944 passing the Cleveland Cavaliers at 20,562 per game. In 2014 the Bulls average attendance was 21,716 with a 17,551 attendance average on the road according to ESPN. At the end of the 2014 the Chicago Bulls ticket price average was $120 per ticket which has dipped 14.16% to start off the 2015 season to $103.00 per ticket.

Bucks @ Bulls, January 10th United Center
Starting price $74, Average price $98
Nobody expected the Bucks to compete for the division title in the Central division. But months into the season, the Bucks are competitive as ever, which makes their duel with the Bulls even more interesting. Chicago won the first duel in Milwaukee, and the Bucks might look for revenge on the opposing team floor. View all Bulls vs Bucks tickets for the United Center.

Cavaliers @ Bulls, February 12th United Center
Starting price $155, Average price $266
By February, LeBron James should be back in uniform, the Cavs should have things figured out, and this might be the best duel the two teams have in the regular season. The first clash of the Central division rivals was won by Cleveland, and it was a high scoring game. But that was in October when Derrick Rose was rusty, and Butler was a role player. Now, Rose is healthy and spry, and Butler looks like the second or third best shooting guard in the league. View all Bulls vs Cavaliers Tickets for the United Center.

Wizards @ Bulls, March 3rd United Center
Starting price $55, Average price $109
The Wizards were the team to eliminate the Bulls from the 2014 playoffs. And it wasn’t pretty, with Washington racing to a 4-1 advantage. The Bulls were low on offensive firepower last year, but this time, things look different. This will also be a testing game, where teams looking for a long playoffs run experiment between each other. Both the Bulls and the Wizards are poised to be in the playoffs, but just for how long, it is unknown yet. View all Wizards vs Bulls Tickets for the United Center.

Raptors @ Bulls, March 20th United Center
Starting price $75, Average price $115
Considering how tight the race is in the East, which happens for the first time in years, wins versus top 4 teams are important as ever. The Bulls beat the Raptors two times already, but if they manage to win one more, they will hold the tiebreaker, a nifty asset in the playoffs. Hopefully, for the March game, fans can see both the Raptors and the Bulls backcourt healthy. Head to head matchups between Butler/Rose and Lowry/DeRozan are a delight, and the real winners are the fans who get to see them. View all Bulls vs Raptors Tickets for the United Center.

Hawks @ Bulls, April 15th United Center
Starting price $40, Average price $67
To close out the season, Chicago welcomes Atlanta. The teams are currently in the top 4 in the East, and considering all the facts, they might stay there by the end of the season. The Hawks won the first matchup, and the teams play in January in Chicago as well. However, the last game of the season might decide which team is ranked 1-2-3-4. The race is tight in the East!

Cleveland Cavs Court

Cavaliers Ticket Prices Drop 18% In 2015

Hardly anyone can figure these Cavaliers. They go on a run, then lose a few games, then they mix things up, and then people start pointing fingers. A team with LeBron James on it is sure to qualify for the playoffs, but what then is the real question. And how high will they be ranked?

The Cavaliers still lead the league in attendance according to ESPN with 18 games they are at 370,116 with an average of 20,562 per game which is up 26.98% average in 2013. In December of 2014 the Cavaliers Ticket price average was $240.00 per ticket and starting the New Year with no Lebron, and average play by the Cavs their ticket price average has dropped 18.75% to $195 per ticket. Only the New York Knicks ticket price average drop of 20.26% from $153.00 to $122.00 is a larger drop.

Here is a look at five upcoming games for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bulls @ Cavaliers, January 19, Starting price $76, Average price $189
After their five-game road trip, the Cavs come back home to host the Chicago Bulls, their division rivals. LeBron James should be back in uniform for the game, a fact with which the table is set for a great game. When the season started, the Bulls and the Cavs were considered favorites to win the East, but they are trailing surprise teams such as Toronto Raptors and Atlanta Hawks.

Lakers @ Cavaliers, February 8, Starting price $103, Average price $167
It was a long time before James and Kobe played against each other as members of the Cavs and the Lakers. There were times when fans were dreaming of a finals matchup between Cleveland and Los Angeles. That hasn’t happened, and it doesn’t look like it will happen any time soon. For the time being, fans can enjoy the duel between Kobe and LeBron. You can view Cavaliers vs Lakers tickets for the Quicken Loans Arena. The Lakers vs Cavaliers ticket prices for the Staples Center have also dropped 18.18% from their get in the door high of $110.00 to $85.00 per ticket.

Heat @ Cavaliers, February 11, Starting price $84, Average price $225
James went to Miami this season for Christmas, but he hasn’t hosted his old team yet. He will have the chance to play host for the Heat on February 11th. Before teaming up with Dwayne Wade, James and his buddy had some of the best duels between them. Everything points to this game is one of the better as well.

Pistons @ Cavaliers, April 13, Starting price $46, Average price $79
You might say this is a meaningless, division game. However, the Detroit Pistons were the ones to embarrass the Cavs on their home court this season, causing LeBron James to question the defence of the Cavaliers. James and the Pistons do share a history, and the second game in the Quicken Loans Arena should be the one James will be waiting for revenge.

Wizards @ Cavaliers, April 15, Starting price $67, Average price $117
The Cavs close out the season versus one of the current top 3 teams in the East. This will also be a duel between two highly gifted point guards in John Wall and Kyrie Irving. Both of them were the number one pick, and both were supposed to save their franchise. Kyrie has LeBron now, and John Wall considers himself and Bradley Beal the best backcourt in the league. With all that in mind, the duel also serves as the booster for playoff confidence.

Six Games The Hawks Need To Win In 2015

Surprise, surprise! 30 games into the season and the team many expected to be in the lottery or fight for a playoff spot is second in the East. For the past month, the Hawks are one of the top 3 teams in the league. The players and the staff managed to block all the Danny Ferry rumours and media rumblings, and are now looking to take advantage of the situation in the East. There is no clear favorite in the East, unlike the past 3-4 seasons, when Miami was the team to beat. At the moment, the East is wide open, and everyone has a chance, so why not the Hawks? There are still important games to play, and the following five are the most important for the Hawks.

Wizards @ Hawks, January 11, Starting price $40, Average price $46
The Hawks and the Wizards are in the top 4 teams in the East. They are also in a wire to wire race for the division title in the SouthEast. The Hawks won the first game in Washington, and if they can capitalize and win at home, they will have better chance to hold the tiebreaker with the Wizards. A division title guarantees home-court advantage in the first round at least, and considering rankings at the moment, Hawks and Wizards might play in the second round of the playoffs. View all Hawks vs Wizards Tickets for Philips Arena.

Hawks at Raptors, January 16, Starting price $73, Average price $120
If the season ended today, the Raptors would be first in the East, and the Hawks would be second.

Both teams are playing awesome basketball recently, so the duel in Canada will be entertaining. View all Raptors vs Hawks Tickets for the Air Canada Center.

Warriors @ Hawks, February 6, Starting price $22, Average price $78
The Hawks haven’t played the Warriors yet. Both their defence and offence will be tested versus one of the best teams in the league. If Andrew Bogut is healthy by then, the Hawks might have troubles scoring. And if there is one team that shoots 3s as well as the Hawks that is the Warriors.
Additionally, Korver and Curry are two of the player’s defences pay most attention to, and players opponents are glued to. Therefore, it will be fun to see how they handle each other. View all Hawks vs Warriors Tickets for Philips Arena.

Cavaliers @ Hawks, March 6th, Starting Price $89, Average price $189

View all Hawks vs Warriors Tickets for Philips Arena.

Hawks vs Spurs, March 20, Starting price $36, Average price $76
They call the Hawks the San Antonio Spurs of the East. And with Mike Budenholzer on the sidelines, a former Spurs assistant, that is true. Budenholzer has managed to copy the space, move the ball, corner 3s system that the Spurs employ to perfection. And the results are showing. The first game between the two was a close one, with the Spurs prevailing 94-92.Hawks vs Warriors Tickets for the AT&T Center.

Hawks at Bulls, April 15, Starting price $41, Average price $111
For the Hawks, this is their last game of the season. Considering the playoff race in the East is as close as ever, the last game might decide whether a team finishes 3rd, 4th of 5th. The Bulls are also one of the top teams in the East, and winning against them just before the playoffs start is a confidence booster. Add the difficulty of playing on the road, and the Hawks have a hard task before them. Bulls vs Hawks Tickets for the AT&T Center.

Lakers Kobe Bryant

Bulls & Cavaliers Highlight Lakers Top Tickets In January

The Los Angeles Lakers have a tough decision and job to do. On one hand, they are way out of the playoffs. They are 4 games behind the 8th ranked Pelicans, but the Thunder are bound to get to that spot and improve even more. In order to get to the playoffs, the Lakers might actually have to make up for the difference with the 7th ranked team currently, which is Dallas. They are almost 10 games behind. If they fail to make the playoffs, it will be the FIRST time in Lakers history that the team has missed the playoffs in consecutive years. On the other hand, their first round pick is top 5 protected, and that might be the best chance for the team to get a quality player. If the draft is now, they will pick 7th, unless they jump into the top 3 by luck. Being in limbo is not something the Lakers are used to do, but they will have to do it this season. Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the scoring list, so the only reason left to watch the Lakers this season is, well, entertainment. No matter how bad they are, the Lakers are a show to watch any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. Here is a look at Lakers ticket prices and their January schedule.

Lakers vs Grizzlies, January 2, Starting price $41, Average price $74

Arguably the best team in the West, or the second best team comes to Staples Center. Marc Gasol is an MVP candidate. Yes, that is the same Gasol Lakers traded for Pau. But, Pau brought the team 2 titles, and the other Gasol is now blossoming. The Lakers did beat the Spurs this year, so they can handle strong teams from time to time.

Lakers vs Pacers, January 4, Starting price $33, Average price $82

In some parallel world, this would be a homecoming for Paul George. Sadly, the Los Angeles native is hurt, which might be good news for the Lakers. The Pacers are another team in a limbo, giving the Lakers a fair chance for a win. They lost the first duel with the Pacers in Indiana.

Lakers vs Magic, January 9, Starting price $30, Average price $84

Another very winnable game for the Lakers as they host the Magic, a team that was supposed to improve this season, but it hasn’t happened yet. One good reason to tune into this game is Elfrid Payton and his haircut. Not that he is not a good player, but his haircut is fun to see.

Lakers vs Blazers, January 11, Starting price $32, Average price $82

The Lakers have yet to play the Blazers this season. Two years ago, the teams were on the opposite side, as Lakers were trying to win the West, while the Blazers were hoping to make the playoffs. Things change fast in the NBA. At least you get to see Kobe going at the Blazers, one team he loves to compete with, both in LA and in Portland.

Lakers vs Heat, January 13, Starting Price $44, Average price $202

Last year, this was a LeBron vs Kobe matchup. This year, it is back to Kobe vs Wade, two shooting guards that are way past their prime, but still very much serviceable players. Their duels over the years are legendary, and there won’t be many more of those duels.

Lakers vs Cavaliers, January 15, Starting Price $118, Average price $152

The Lakers finish their four game home streak with the Cavaliers, hosting James, Irving and Love. This game should provide tons of excitement, as the King is coming to LA, after being free agent this summer. LeBron has ditched the Lakers few times by now. But the more interesting question might be Kevin Love, who is on the Lakers radar as a free agent target this summer.

Lakers vs Rockets, January 25, Starting price $39, Average price $105
The teams split the first two games. But the more interesting moment was Kobe calling Dwight soft during the first matchup. Until Kobe plays for the Lakers, and Dwight is wearing a Houston uniform, the duels with the Rockets will be intriguing. Not to mention that James Harden has unofficially taken over the title best shooting guard in the league, and Kobe always tries to prove something.

Lakers vs Wizards, January 27, Starting price $25, Average price $76

The Wizards spanked the Lakers in their first duel, with Bradley Beal going for 27 points and Chris Humphries dominating the boards with 20 rebounds. Those two things cannot happen again if the Lakers hope to get a win.

Lakers vs Bulls, January 29, Starting price $62, Average price $132

The teams will meet for Christmas, and it has become a standard in the past years the Lakers and the Bulls to play on Christmas. Pau Gasol is coming back to town, after he left to play with a contending team. It looks like he made the right choice, but Kobe doesn’t forget and forgive, even friends and close partners such as Pau was to him.

Warriors Tickets

Warriors have a true homecourt advantage

Golden State Warriors fansIn sports, playing at home makes a world of difference. Being able to sleep in your bed, go without the travel, and go through your normal routine is an advantage in sports. For the most part, teams at home perform better. Every team in the NBA had a better record at home than away last season with the Washington Wizards having an even split. Who has the game’s best fans though? Which NBA team’s fans make away teams not want to come back because they can’t hear themselves calling out plays? That distinction goes to the fans of the Golden Golden State Warriors fansIn sports, playing at home makes a world of difference. Being able to sleep in your bed, go without travel, and go through your normal routine is an advantage in sports. For the most part, teams at home perform better. Every team in the NBA had a better record at home than away last season with the Washington Wizards having an even split. Who has the game’s best fans though? Which NBA team’s fans make away teams not want to come back because they can’t hear themselves calling out plays? That distinction goes to the fans of the Golden State Warriors. The fans sell out Oracle Arena and play the role of the sixth man, lifting their own team and making the opposing team’s night a frustrating experience.

Golden State is generally not thought of a hotbed for basketball. They don’t have a rich history like the Los Angeles Lakers or Boston Celtics. The area is well-known for possessing the most geniuses per square mile as it is the technology capital of the world. It may not have a storied team history, but Oakland has a rich basketball tradition producing the likes of Jason Kidd, Gary Payton and Damian Lillard. Some of the best point guards have come out of the Bay Area, but they haven’t won a division title since 1976.

GS warriors fans oracle arenaEntering the 2006-2007 season, Golden State had not had a winning season since the 1993-1994 season. They hadn’t even won more than 38 games. In 2006-2007, led by point guard Baron Davis, the Warriors won 42 games and snagged the eight seed in the West. They played the top team in the West, the Dallas Mavericks, who was heavily favoured. The Golden State Warriors had other ideas though. Each home game, Golden State fans packed Chase Center to full capacity and 19, 596 screaming fans were wearing gold shirts and waving towels. The decibel levels were off the charts, the opposition couldn’t hear themselves, and the crowd noise rivalled that of a rock concert. The Warriors upset the Mavericks in six games, and Oracle Arena was reborn.

They didn’t get back to the playoffs until two seasons ago and were led by sharpshooter Stephen Curry. When starting power forward, David Lee went down early in game one; the Warriors chances were diminished. However, they rallied around their fans and defeated the Denver Nuggets in six games again. Had it not been for some late-game struggles on the road in the second round and Golden State could have made it to the Western Conference Finals.

At a Lakers game, it’s more of a celebrity affair. Countless movie stars, directors, musicians and other celebrities line the courtside at Lakers games. However, the crowd doesn’t play a huge role in Los Angeles. In Oakland, the crowd plays a huge role, and the area geniuses don the Warriors colors and cheer on their team in hopes of providing that distinct homecourt advantage.Chris M.

The Ups and Downs of Lockout Ball

The long-hyped sophomore Point Guard monster for the Washington Wizards, John Wall, is finally coming into his own this season. Through the first 11 games of the season, he averaged 13 points on an atrocious 34% shooting. In the last five games, Wall is shooting 41% (only marginally better), but stuffing the stat sheet with 24 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block. Except for the bad shooting, those stats are among the elite of basketball. If he keeps it up, and eventually gets his shot to fall, John Wall could be looking at his ascension into the conversation for best Point Guard sooner rather than later. The effects of the lockout seem to be wearing off finally for Wall and others who have had a historically slow start to their seasons.
