We already showed you how John Wall broke Ish Smith’s ankles with a crossover when the Wizards beat the Magic, but these two had one other great play in this game.

Wall cuts down the lane and gets a nice pass from Trevor Ariza, stops to gather himself and gives a little pump fake as Smith is fully into it and jumps to block the shot then just clears Wall completely.

My favorite part of this is not that Smith leaps over Wall, it’s that he lands and has the presence of mind to recover and still block the shot. Then credit Wall for getting the ball back and getting to the line out of it.

For the record, Smith is six foot and Wall is listed as 6'4".
