John Wall's year didn't end the way he hoped, but the Washington Wizards star still filed a memorable postseason.

Despite going scoreless in the fourth quarter of Game 7's series-ending loss to the Boston Celtics, the point guard averaged 27.2 points and 10.3 assists through 13 playoff bouts. His signature moment came in Game 6, when he kept Washington alive with a game-winning three.

With seconds remaining, Al Horford banked a mid-range jumper to give Boston a 91-89 edge. Instead of trying to tie the score, Wall successfully went for the win.

His Wizards were sent packing Monday night, but the 26-year-old staked his claim to stardom during the playoffs.
