Wizards' John Wall Named Eastern Conference Player Of The Month

Wizards point guard John Wall was named Eastern Conference Player of the Month today, the second time in his seven-year career.

Washington Wizards PG and former Kentucky star John Wall was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Month on Tuesday after leading his team to a 10-5 record in December—their first 10-win month since December 2014.

Wall was an unstoppable force throughout December, leading the East in steals (2.7), assists (10.7) and ranking No. 5 in scoring. He averaged a point-assist double-double for the entire month, and scored a career-high 52 points in a 124-116 loss to the Orlando Magic on December 6. Wall averaged 24.5 points, 10.7 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 steals over the period.

The 6-foot-4 point guard beat out Boston's Isaiah Thomas, Cleveland's LeBron James and Toronto's Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to win the honor.

Wall was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, and the national player of the year as a freshman at Kentucky.
