The very next night after seeing a four-game win streak snapped by the Boston Celtics, the Washington Wizards exacted their revenge. They edged out the Celtics in double overtime for a 133-132 win.
John Wall had a phenomenal game, logging 26 points, and 17 assists, but after his outstanding performance, Wall broke down into tears during his postgame interview.
Last season, Wall befriended a young girl: Miyah Telemaque-Nelson. Miyah was a cancer patient, and Wall helped fulfill her dream of meeting recording artist Nicki Minaj. Miyah passed away with Burkitt’s Lymphoma on Monday morning.
During the interview, which you can watch in full above, Wall struggled to find the words to speak about her passing.
