John Wall took the Washington Wizards to the brink of success, but the Boston Celtics prevented them from crossing the threshold.
Following the Celtics’ 115-105 win over the Wizards in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series, Wall revealed the extent of his agony over the loss.
Wall was the Wizards’ driving force throughout the series, but he looked physically worn down in Game 7, scoring just five points in the second half.
Wall struggled to explain his relatively poor performance in the final minutes, but the four-time All-Star had no problem putting the Wizards’ 2016-17 regular season and second-round playoff exit in perspective.
