After drubbing the Atlanta Hawks in Game 7 of their first-round series of the 2014 NBA playoffs, the Indiana Pacers appeared poised to recapture some of their early-season magic.

And then John Wall showed up and the Pacers were all like, "Oh man, why does this guy keep doing this to us? This is awful!"

Wall has been just as devastating at the other end:

Somewhere, the rest of Bob Cousy's hair just fell out.

Thanks largely to Wall, the Wizards jumped out to a big first-quarter lead in Monday's opening game of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
