There was a play during Friday night's game between the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks that may have brought back some tough memories for Washington fans.
In the second quarter, John Wall went up for a fastbreak layup and was undercut by Hawks forward Paul Millsap. Wall fell to the ground and took a moment to get up before heading ot the line for a free throw.
Watch the whole sequence here:
Wall was fine and made the layup, but the play was reminiscent of his infamous fall in the 2015 playoffs on the same basket in Atlanta. That day Wall suffered five non-displaced fractures in his hand. Many believe that play tipped the series and prevented the Wizards from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Thankfully, this time he emerged unscathed.
