John Wall Denies Rodney Stuckey with Emphatic Block

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall offered 20 points and 12 assists in his team's 111-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday night, but it's possible his best play of the evening occurred on the defensive end of the court. 

With under four minutes left in the contest, Indiana's Rodney Stuckey picked off a bad pass at midcourt and raced toward the basket for what seemed to be an easy two points. Wall was having none of it, however, as he caught up with Stuckey and timed his jump perfectly to deny the Pacers guard with a powerful rejection.

It turns out Mr. Wall was not overrated this evening.
