Back in his home state, with his mother, Frances Pulley, sitting a few rows behind the Wizards' bench, John Wall had plenty of incentive to put on a show against the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Wall appeared to be headed toward a special night when he had an assist, a steal and a layup to help the Wizards score the first eight points. He wouldn't get another steal or score another point for the rest for the game, but there probably aren't many players who would be more excited to match his career low in points – in what was easily the best two-point game of Wall's career.
