Wizards guard John Wall (2) out-sprints fellow No.1 draft pick Kyrie Irving in the second half of NBA action at Verizon Center on Saturday, March 3. The Wizards defeated the Cleveland cavaliers 101-98 snapping a six-game loss. John Wall (24) and Jordan Crawford (31) were the leading scorers. At the end of the game to the surprise of fans confetti and streamers came down from the rafters. Former Wizards all-stars Antawn Jamison, playing his first return game at Verizon Center, scored 29 points. Wizards Head Coach Randy Wittman commenting on Wall's play said,"John (Wall) has been playing well. I like where he's been going with his decision making. As a coach you want to prepare them, get them ready and let them play. John's getting a understanding of where I want the ball, whose hands I want the ball in, what plays to run without having to look over at me every time. That's the growth of the point guard and he's made great steps over the past couple of weeks."/ Photo by John E. De Freitas
