John Wall's one of the most exciting players in the league, and plays like the one above are a major reason why.
In the closing minutes of the third quarter, Wall poked away a pass from Mike Dunleavy intended for Kirk Hinrich. Trevor Ariza grabbed the ball, tossed it forward to a streaking Wall, who had just Dunleavy between him and the basket. As Dunleavy went to foul Wall to impede his progress, Wall spun 180 degrees in the air and simultaneously threw up a circus shot over his head. The ball banked in, and Wall finished the three-point play to pull the Wizards within three, 70-67.
Wall finished the game with 23 points and 11 assists in 34 minutes. After the game he tried to explain how in the world he hit that shot.
"I don't know. I was going to my patented behind-the-back move and I knew (Dunleavy) was going to foul me so I just wanted to get it up to the rim," he said laughing.
Joakim Noah apparently had no idea how Wall made the shot, either:
