John Wall Hurt, Wesley Matthews on Fire in Mavericks’ Win Over Wizards

Icon Sportswire

The Washington Wizards’ rough start to the season continued Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks. Not only did the Wizards fall to 8-10 on the season after a 116-104 loss, but star point guard John Wall had to be carried to the locker room with what appeared to be a knee injury:

Wall was able to walk under his own power after the game:

Needless to say, the Wizards can’t afford a serious Wall injury. The season has been enough of a struggle as it is, and losing the best player won’t help that. Hopefully this is nothing serious.

As for the Mavericks, Wesley Matthews went bananas from long distance. Matthews tied a career high with 36 points, with 30 of those points coming on a career-high 10 three-pointers. He shot 10-of-17 from long range.

It’s been a bit of a roller coaster for Matthews this season after he tore his Achilles last year, so this monster performance has to feel good. The next step is finding that consistency again that made him one of the better 2-guards in the league before the injury.
