The Orlando Magic have a nice, developing backcourt, but with Victor Oladipo injured and Elfrid Payton still so young, you had the feeling this could become a game where John Wall could have a strong performance. He didn't disappoint. Wall scored 30 points on 10-21 shooting from the field, including 2-5 on threes. He also added in 12 assists, 5 rebounds and a pair of steals, while only turning the ball over twice.
Here are the full highlights, including the layup in the final minute that sealed the victory:
John Wall also had a double-double against the Heat on Wednesday, which means he's 2 for 2 on getting double-doubles this season. It also means he's did something that hasn't been done in Washington in over 20 years:
John Wall is 1st Wizards/Bullets player with 10 or more assists in each of his team's first 2 games of a season since Michael Adams,1991-92

As nice as Wall has been these first two games (especially Thursday against Orlando) Michael Adams was a bit better in his first two games. He went for 23 points, 13 assists and 9 steals in the first game of that season, and followed it up with 40 & 11 the next night against the Larry Bird and the Celtics.
