Wizards star Wall out vs Raptors with sprained left shoulder

Bradley Beal had 36 points for the Wizards, but Wall had just 13 on 4 of 13 shooting.

Could a LeBron-and-Wall-led Wizards team take down a Golden State Warriors team with Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green?

However, on Friday's edition of "The Jump" on ESPN, NBA legend Paul Pierce said he thinks LeBron should stay in the Eastern Conference. Even from James' rookie season, Bayless was in opposition of the amount of hype LeBron was receiving straight out of high school and told everyone he'd never live up to it.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered a sarcastic response to the comments following the Cavs' win: "They're right: They are the best team in the East". If he can't show up in big games like these, it makes many wonder whether the Wizards seriously have the ability to make it past the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Jordan Clarkson added 19 points and Brandon Ingram had 18 for the Lakers, but Lonzo Ball scored just six on 3 of 15 shooting.

Despite the injury, Wall played through the fourth quarter - although later, admitted, "I shouldn't have been out there" - and led the Wizards by logging 38:28. Green, who continued the incident by confronting Beal and failing to disengage from him, was ejected for fighting, and has been fined $25,000. "I believe it's the Washington Wizards".

Jodie Meeks, Mike Scott, and Kelly Oubre have all been great bench players for the Wizards.

"Each and every night", Beal said.

James Harden had 21 of his 29 points in the first half and the Rockets improved to 6-1 on the road by dealing the Hawks their eighth consecutive loss, 119-104. Hopefully, he can turn things around.

Wall is averaging 20.5 points and 10.4 assists per game. The defense gets worse as well, going from 105.1 to 108.8 when he leaves the court, but something to watch tonight against the very stingy Raptors defense is how the Wizards manage to create offense with Wall out of the lineup completely.
