It’s been a tough few years for LA Clippers point guard John Wall as injuries limited him to just 72 games over the past four seasons.
Making his Clippers debut against the Los Angeles Lakers at Crypto.com Arena, Wall was back like he never left, knocking down his first shot after he checked into the game midway through the first quarter.
John Wall is BACK!

Wall was aggressive attacking the basket and looking for his own shot, giving the Clippers’ offense a new dimension as he pushed the pace and found open shooters in transition.
He finished with a team-high 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting, adding four rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 25 minutes on court.
As Wall helped the Clippers to a 103-97 victory — their eighth in a row over the Lakers — players around the league, past and present took to Twitter to show the former No.1 pick love.
