#3 John Wall
The Washington Wizards have improved of late after having a torrid start to the season. Much of this improvement can be attributed to the consistent displays of John Wall.
The All-Star point guard had another commanding performance in the 135-131 overtime victory over the Houston Rockets. John Wall finished with 36 points on 13-23 shooting from the field and also dished out 11 assists.
John Wall is now averaging 22 points and eight assists for the season with 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. He again seems to be playing at an All-Star level and is guiding his team to victories.
There had been plenty of rumors regarding the trade speculations of the Wizards All-Star backcourt. But they have shown improved displays in the past few games.
The Wizards have rampantly climbed up the Eastern Conference standings and are now placed in the 9th position with an 8-12 record.
