Talk about perfect timing. John Wall was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week today. James Harden won the same award in the West. Their teams face off on the court tonight.
The Wizards (16-16) travel to Houston for a showdown with the Rockets (26-9) Monday. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. on CSN.
Wall has averaged 24.3 points and 13 assists in the Wizards' three wins this week. Harden averaged 37.3 points and 12.5 assists in four wins this week.
Wall and Harden are two of only three NBA guards that average a double-double in points and assists. The third is Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.
The contest tonight will give Wall, a three-time All-Star, his chance to prove he can keep up with a bonafide MVP candidate in Harden.
