The Wizards have been one of the hotter teams in basketball lately, and a big part of that is their star player John Wall.
Wall showed up again for Washington in a big way Tuesday night, pulling up to hit the game-winning jumper with five seconds left to go, as the Wizards got themselves a 101-99 victory over the Bulls.

That shot helped the Wizards get over .500 for the season at 19-18, and improve their home record to an astonishingly-good 15-6.
Wall led the game in scoring with 26 points, and had 14 assists and 6 rebounds to go along with them.
The game winner was a big moment for Wall, in what has been statistically perhaps the best year of his career.
Thanks to a radically improved field goal percentage, he has averaged over 23 points a game, over 10 assists per game, and leads the league at 2.3 steals per game.
