The Wizards weren't going to wait for Carmelo Anthony to have an explosion before making an adjustment defensively.
They launched a pre-emptive strike.
For the second night in a row, John Wall had to carry the Wizards on offense.
Washington (4-8) is playing its fourth game in five days, but at least it'll be at home.
Getting a career-high 47 points in a game last season was much better for John Wall than the 37 he posted Friday, which was a season-high.
