John Wall scored 35 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the Wizards' 111-105 win over the Pacers.
As SportsCenter's official Twitter account reminds us, no Wizards guard has done that since His Airness Michael Jordan.

This feels like the right time to point out that, hours before this tweet, news broke that ESPN bumped the Wizards off their primetime broadcast on January 11 in favor of the Thunder vs. Grizzlies.
Hmmm ... do I detect a whiff of irony?
