Memo to all NBA players: No shot is safe around John Wall.
The sooner that gets around, maybe some will notice and respect his range. Wall said earlier this season he was the best shot-blocking point guard in NBA history and once again he made a tough argument for his case. His latest victim was Atlanta Hawks’ Kent Bazemore.
Bazemore appeared to have a quick two points on a layup. Except, Wall was lurking from the weak side of Bazemore’s drive. Wall showed his athleticism and swatted the shot attempt off the backboard.
When @JohnWall's in the vicinity, lay-ups just aren't a good idea. ✋

That momentum of the block allowed the Wizards turn possession into transition, ending with a corner three pointer from Markieff Morris. Wall’s efforts turned the sequence into a five-point turnaround.
Wall finished with two blocks, giving him five in his last two games with two being of a chase down. The Wizards went on to blowout the Hawks 113-94.
