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.
Ever since John Wall made a career-high five three-pointers, in the Wizards' first win of the season after opening with three consecutive losses, his shooting percentages have taken a nose dive.
Coach Randy Wittman already was contemplating making changes to his rotation, before he lost Trevor Ariza (right hamstring strain) and Al Harrington (right knee soreness) more than a week ago.
John Wall took the heat after the first meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers five days ago, when Kyrie Irving -- the 2011 No. 1 overall draft pick -- tied a career-high with 41 points.
