Wall had to carry a lot of the offensive load due to the fact that, per usual, the bench gave almost nothing in support. The bench players combined to score just 16 points last night, while Wall himself scored a season high 35 on his own. Wall also finished with 11 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and a block in 42 minutes. Unfortunately, the Wizards fell to the Utah Jazz, 107-104. The Wizards bench usually contributes around 34 points per contest, but that total is near the bottom third of the NBA league rankings. No shocker here if you read my posts on a weekly basis, but the New Orleans Pelicans are dead last in bench production in the NBA, getting under 24 points per game from their subs. The starting lineups for these former Wildcat led teams are great, but the organizations need to do a better job of getting the starters some relief if they expect to make any sort of run. Watch Wall's full highlights here: Numbers:   [table id=93 /]     Highlights: Schedule:
