It feels like forever since the regular season of the NBA has graced our television screens, and John Wall wasted no time reminding us why we missed the game as much as we did.

With his Washington Wizards taking on the Utah Jazz, Wall welcomed the second half of the NBA season with a dirty behind-the-back move to sneak through two defenders in the lane, then finished with a tough layup.

The Wiz need plays like this from Wall on the daily if they're to improve on their disappointing 23-28 record and sneak into the Eastern Conference playoffs. The acquisition of Markieff Morris should help, but it's stuff like this from Wall that make you wonder how it is the Wizards have been as bad as they have.
