John Wall enters for Wiz at 4:56 of the first, to a standing ovation.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) January 13, 2013
In the end, it was just good to see Wall back on the floor. Whether or not he looked pristine in his first few minutes of the season is beside the point, as it's going to take a few weeks for him to be anywhere near playing at 100 percent.
Adding such a compelling point guard to such a woeful offensive team is going to take some getting used to, and it's going to take some time for him to get reacquainted with real-time game situations.
They've got to get used to a guy who is as capable as Wall is as a passer, and learn to expect to get the ball in almost any situation.
While they weren't all feeling it Saturday night, there was a nice vibe among the team when Wall was in the game, which is a great sign.
In the end, he had a fine game, but there are very obvious areas where he can improve, as expected.
Wall finished the game with 14 points, two rebounds and four assists. A solid night overall.
