Former Kentucky Star John Wall Made NBA History Tonight

John Wall did something not even Michael Jordan or LeBron James have done in the playoffs.

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but John Wall is good at basketball. Tonight his Washington Wizards took down the Boston Celtics, to claim their first win in the series. En route to the win, John Wall put together a stellar performance.

In just 34 minutes, Wall put up 24 points and eight assists, while grabbing three steals to just one turnover.

With the 20-point, 8-rebound performance, Wall did something no one in NBA History has ever done.

Facing a 2-0 deficit, the series moved back to Washington D.C. and the Wizards dominated from the opening whistle. The Wizards used a 22-0 run to open up the game and ended up winning the game by 27 points.

Wall's performance in Game 2 was overshadowed by Isaiah Thomas dropping 53 points in the Boston Celtics' win. However, we'll give him some love here. In Game 2, Wall scored 40 points and assisted on 13 buckets in the Wizards' loss to the Celtics.

He's been spectacular during this postseason run, and the Wizards need more of the same if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.
