Jamison posted seven straight games of 20 or more points from January 5-15 of 2010. Jamison was also the last Wizard to score 20 or more points in eight straight games (March 18-April 1 of 2009).
  • Crawford’s seven game streak of 20 or more points is currently the longest streak in the NBA.

  • John Wall is currently 19 points shy of 2,000 career points.
  • Key Matchup: John Wall vs. Jrue Holiday - Tonight will feature two of the better young point guards in the game as John Wall and Jrue Holiday square off against one another. Both Wall and Holiday are very similar in stature, but their skill sets are a little different. In order to be most effective, Wall will need to get to the rim and setup his teammates, while Holiday will be looking to knock down shots from the perimeter.
