In his postgame press conference following the Washington Wizards' loss to the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, Randy Wittman admitted that John Wall was more of a scorer and that the Wizards weren't making shots on many of his assist opportunities. Does the tape confirm what Wittman was saying?

Let's find out.

Wittman was right: Wall had lots of assist opportunities fall by the wayside. However, it is worth noting that the Magic really cut down on Wall's assist opportunities in general. With just four assists to tack on to the 11 that were missed, Wall had only 15 chances. That's about in the middle of the pack for the season, but it's far less than the 27 he had against the Bucks on Tuesday.

Here's how the missed assists broke down:

  • Spot-up: 6
  • Off a cut: 2
  • Off a screen: 1
  • Pick and roll: 1
  • Transition: 1
And here's how it broke down by player:
Wall's teammates converted on just 26.6 percent of his assist opportunities, bringing his season conversion percentage down to 43.97 percent.
