Washington Wizards point guard John Wall had a pretty rough Game 3, and here's one explanation: he couldn't see.

Wall was poked in the eye early in the second half on Friday, and said on Saturday that he "could barely see" in the third quarter, via the Associated Press.

The Indiana Pacers outscored the Wizards 26-12 in the third quarter and went on to win by 22 points. Wall finished with 15 points on 6-for-13 shooting, plus six assists, four rebounds and seven turnovers. Five of those turnovers came after halftime.

He said that his 3-for-6 mark at the free throw line in the second half was due to the cut on his eyeball, via J. Michael of CSN Washington.

Wall wore a contact lens on Saturday with solution to help the cut heal. Washington head coach Randy Wittman said he should be fine to play in Game 4 on Sunday.
