John Wall Reacts to Returning to Washington D.C. for First Time Since Being Traded to Houston
Houston Rockets’ John Wall spoke to media following return to D.C. against Wizards.
Wall spoke on the Rockets battling through injuries to fight through and win games.
“That’s why I’m the leader of the team, that’s why I have to keep these guys afloat. It’s something we deal with. A lot of teams might have to deal with it throughout the year, we can’t really control the aspect of that. Me as a leader and a veteran guy to keep these guys above float. Keep working with them, keep pushing them every day, and keep giving ourselves a chance to fight. It’s a battle that we’re going through.”
“It’s great”, Wall said on the Rockets keeping their heads up after tough losses. “That’s the most important thing about it, nobody’s putting their heads down like I’m telling them every day. Keep fighting, don’t give up, It’s a bump in the road but all you do the next man up, and just give ourselves a chance. All you can do is go out there and play hard and give ourselves a chance.”
In addition, Wall spoke on his success during the first half vs. Washington.
“I still feel like I played the same way the second half, agressive. I just didn’t get a lot of calls I got in the first half. I got 10 free throws, I didn’t get any in the second half and I feel like I was still attacking. Give credit to them, they did a lot better job loading up on me and making me kick the shooters. Like I said, I believe in my guys no matter who it is shooting the ball. I see these guys work on it every day so I wanna make the right play. I miss some easy shots I wish I would have made, like I did in the first half and second half. Couple of my guys missed some shots we felt like were good shots, and they were making shots, and that basically determines the game.”
