John Wall may have gotten suspended for the Cleveland game for his role in a scuffle with Miami earlier in the week, but that wasn't the only notoriety Wall garnered.
On Friday, Wall was named the Eastern Conference T-Mobile Rookie of the Month for the month of March.
Wall ranked third among all rookies in scoring (18.1 points per game), first in assists (7.3 per game) and first in steals (1.67 per game). He became the first Washington rookie to record at least 32 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in a game since Earl Monroe in 1968.
"It's a good honor for him, for the team," Wizards coach Flip Saunders said. "It's something he earned and he'll build on it."
WIZARDS 115, CAVALIERS 107: With John Wall sitting out a one-game suspension, Andray Blatche tied his career high with 36 points and 19 rebounds and Jordan Crawford finished with 21 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Washington's victory.
Blatche was making his second appearance since returning from a shoulder injury that forced him from 10 consecutive games. Wall did not play as a result of his role in a scuffle on Wednesday against Miami.
Ramon Sessions led Cleveland with 26 points and J.J. Hickson had 21 points and 10 rebounds.
