John Wall has become the first player to achieve 10 consecutive NBA Playoff games with at least 20 points scored and seven assists dished out. Washington Wizards guard Wall is on a streak of 10 games in a row as of this writing. The guard collected 24 points and assisted eight times during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Boston Celtics. Wall led Washington to a 116-89 win over Boston on Thursday night. The team from D.C. badly needed to win the game, having lost the opening two games to Boston at TD Garden.

Passed the greatest basketball player ever

Michael Jordan held the record for the most consecutive 20+ points and 7+ assists in postseason games.

The former Chicago Bulls superstar's record was broken on Thursday by John Wall.

Wizards star Wall has been playing great basketball thus far during the 2017 NBA Playoffs. The guard led his side to beat the Atlanta Hawks in the opening round of the Eastern Conference. He had a huge series against Atlanta, posting 29.5 points and 10.3 assists per game. Wall has continued his great form in the semifinals against Boston as well. He has been collecting 28 points and 12.3 assists per contest in three games played in the series.

The Wizards come out firing

No team has ever scored more first quarter points than the Wizards through the first three games of an NBA Playoffs series. John Wall's Washington has combined for 119 opening quarter points thus far in the series against Boston. The team from D.C. collected 38 first quarter point in Game 1, 42 points in Game 2, and 39 points in their last meeting.

A good start to the game in Game 4 would be more than welcome by the Wizards as they hope to tie the series at 2-2.

Thomas stopped

Isaiah Thomas now holds the NBA postseason record for the fewest points scored for a player coming off a 50-point performance, according to Elias Sports Bureau. The Boston Celtics guard scored 13 points in Game 3 against the Wizards after scoring 53 in Game 2 in Boston. He shot 3-of-8 from the field and knocked down seven of 11 of his free-throw attempts on Thursday night at the Verizon Center.

Thomas and John Wall have been leading their respective teams thus far in their matchup. Boston and Thomas will be looking to bounce back in Game 4 after a disappointing outing in Game 3 of the series.
