Wall agreed to a four-year, $170M extension with the Wizards on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. The Wizards offered Wall an extension at the beginning of free agency, but he was expected to take some time and allow the team to assemble their roster before making a final decision. Ultimately, he opted to to accept the team's max-extension offer, which will kick in following the remaining two years on his deal. The 26-year-old is entering his prime and coming off the best season of his career, in which he recorded career highs in points, assists, and steals. He figures to be primed for another big season.
Wall scored 18 points (8-23 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with 11 assists and seven rebounds across 44 minutes in Monday's 115-105 Game 7 loss to the Celtics. Wall down firing, but unfortunately went cold in the second half-- he missed his final ten shots in the game and finished with his lowest point total of the series. Despite his poor shooting, Wall managed to record his fourth double-double of the series and his seventh overall in the playoffs. Wall finished the series averaging 25.1 points on 39.8 percent from the field with 10.3 assists.
Wall went for 26 points (9-25 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and two blocks across 42 minutes during a 92-91 win over the Celtics on Friday. Wall couldn't buy a bucket in the first half, but got hot late and sunk the game-winning three pointer with 3.5 seconds left to force a Game 7. After a horrific 1-of-12 start from the field, he rebounded nicely by going 8-of-13 to close out the game. Wall has scored at least 20 points in every game of this series, so expect more of the same in Game 7.
Wall posted 21 points (7-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 123-101 Game 5 loss to the Celtics. Wall and the Wizards looked out of sync all night and it cost them dearly in Wednesday's pivotal Game 5 matchup. He finished with his lowest point total since Game 1 and recorded his fewest assists of the post-season. Still, even in a bad game Wall still manages to put up respectable fantasy numbers, and he is a good bet to recover at home for Game 6 attempting to stave off elimination.
Wall finished with 24 points (7-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), eight assists, three steals, one block and one rebound across 34 minutes during Thursday's Game 3 victory over the Celtics. Wall, who missed Thursday's morning shootaround with a right ankle sprain, didn't seem slowed down by his injury during Game 3's decisive victory. He was also given an opportunity to catch his breath due to the blowout, playing just 34 minutes compared to the 42.0 minutes per game he had been averaging over the past five contests. Possibly the most impressive part of Wall's performance Thursday was the fact that he put it all together while only committing one turnover -- his lowest mark of the postseason.
