VIDEO: The Most Important Play John Wall Made Last Night

There's no doubt that John Wall made a ton of incredible plays in last night's Wizards-76ers game. When you become the first person in 20 years to have at least 20 points, 12 assists and eight steals in a game, that tends to happen. But as our own Jake Whitacre pointed out on Twitter, the most important play Wall made last night was one that didn't count "positively" in the stat sheet.

With three minutes and 21 seconds left in overtime and the game tied at 106, Andre Iguodala stripped Andray Blatche and took off the other way with nobody in front of him. Other than LeBron James, there may not be a more explosive finisher in the league in transition than Iguodala. Most players would have given up on the play and gave him two points. Wall did not. Using his speed and incredible leaping ability, Wall caught him and leaped up to block the shot. Here's video.

Wall got called for a foul on the play, but Iguodala only made one of two free throws, saving the Wizards one point. What was the margin of victory for the Wizards last night? You guessed it: one point.
