You know things are going good when you can bust out the Jordan shrug. That was most certainly the case Sunday for John Wall during the Washington Wizards’ playoff opener against the Atlanta Hawks.
Down by three points at halftime, 48-45, Wall took his game to another level in the third quarter, scoring 15 points to help the Wizards go up by seven at the end of the quarter.

Along the way, the point guard busted out the famous Jordan shrug after watching one of his shots hit the back of the rim, rise up a few feet and then drop into the bucket for two.

At one point during the second quarter the Hawks had just capped off a 15-4 run to go up by eight points. Needless to say, entering the fourth quarter they’d lost all their momentum as Wall and Co. had the home crowd on its feet.
