Early this morning Michael Lee blogged that John Wall didn’t give up in last night’s drubbing from the Thunder.
You have to be impressed with Wall, who showed his desire to win near the end of the first half, when he picked up a technical foul after Thunder forward Serge Ibaka (eight blocks) blatantly slapped a shot that caromed off the backboard -- an obvious goaltend that went uncalled. He also displayed it in the fourth quarter, when he set up Kevin Seraphin for an easy layup, only to watch Seraphin miss. Instead of sulking, Wall tracked down Nazr Mohammed to get a steal.
Wall needs to stay tough-minded after facing all-star point guard Russell Westbrook last night, and with MVP candidate Derrick Rose coming up tonight.
As this dreadful season draws to a close, what can Wall learn from matchups against these more experienced point guards?
