John Wall had a very interesting game on Tuesday night when his Houston Rockets took down his former team Washington Wizards with a 107-88 win at Toyota Center. It was quite a night for Wall, who engaged in a heated exchange with Russell Westbrook and reunited with his former teammate Bradley Beal.
He had the last laugh, beating the team that traded him and extending the Rockets' winning streak to three games. After the game was over, Wall explained the secret behind the Rockets' recent success and he seemingly threw shade at James Harden and his desire to leave the team before and during the start of the season (0:57 mark).
“I think getting the trades in, getting people who want to be here, committing on both ends of the floor," Wall said.
If you don't remember, Harden called out his teammates right before he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets. He said the team wasn't good enough to win and Wall took offense to that, firing back at Harden for not believing in the team.
Well, now the Beard is gone to Brooklyn and the Rockets have won their last three games. Christian Wood was the biggest figure of the team during Harden's last games in H-Town but now that Wall is back, he's taking care of things while DeMarcus Cousins has also stepped up and is playing at a great level.
As for Harden, he's still adapting to his new team and his new role with the Nets. Wall is ready to keep playing at a high level and take this team to the top of the league, although the competition is extremely hard this season.
