John Wall is the first player to average at least 20 points, 10 assists, 2 steals and 0.5 blocks
With all the attention Russell Westbrook is getting from the his triple-double performances, another point guard is also having a historic run this year.
Washington Wizards All-Star John Wall is having himself a career year as well and has now become the first player in NBA history to average at least 20 points, 10 assists, two steals and 0.5 blocks in a season.

After the team’s very slow start to the season, they have turned around their fortunes behind the stellar play of the 26-year-old Kentucky product. They are already assured of the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and are geared to make a deep run in the playoffs.
It all started in a stretch back in December when they won nine out of 12 games, and have since put their struggles early in the season behind them. It has allowed Wall to showcase his talents and prove to his doubters that he is truly one of the elite players in the league today.
Wall is averaging a career highs of 23.1 points and 10.7 assists and a league-leading 2.1 steals in 36.4 minutes per game this season. With him leading the way for the Wizards, they are going to be a very difficult team to beat in the playoffs, especially with his teammates who all understand their roles and are ready to contribute night in and night out.
