The former No. 1 overall draft pick is off to an electric start.

He’s put up three double-doubles in as many contests (16 pts, 11 ast at Miami, 30 pts, 12 ast at Orlando and 19 pts, 10 ast vs Milwaukee).

He’s coming off arguably his best all-around performance of the season, as he grabbed six rebounds, stole five passes and blocked a shot (shown below) to go along with his 19 points and 10 assists this past Saturday.

Wall should have his way against the Knicks tonight, who are starting second-year guard Shane Larkin at the point. Larkin, who dazzled fans at the University of Miami, comes into the game averaging eight points and 4.3 assists per game. Regular starter Jose Calderon will miss tonight’s game with a calf injury.

If Wall can get going early against the inexperienced Larkin, the Wizards should be able to control the tempo early and often offensively.
