Wizards’ Wall Sets New Franchise Record for Assists


Washington Wizards guard John Wall broke Hall of Fame center Wes Unseld’s franchise record for career assists before getting ejected with 33.3 seconds left and his team trailing by five to the Houston Rockets.

Wall entered Monday night’s game against the Rockets three shy of Unseld’s mark of 3,822 assists and tied it in the first quarter. He then eclipsed Unseld by feeding Bradley Beal for a dunk with 10:15 left in the third quarter. The accomplishment was announced to the crowd during the next timeout.
