Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks know a thing or two about being a point guard, and he saw a masterful performance by one Saturday night. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t Brandon Jennings even though they still were able to beat the Wizards 104-98. It was John Wall, who received yet another endorsement of sorts.

“He runs his team well. He runs the break as well as anyone,” Cheeks said. “He just has taken his time, and picked up the little nuances of the game and coupled with his ability to get to the rim, he has learned how to shoot the ball and when you have a guy with the quickness that he has, with the ability to get to the rim and then he picks up the jump shot, I think it is pretty dangerous. He plays the game at a nice little speed now and I said to some people, ‘This guy is good now.’”
