It was an up and down night for the Washington Wizards' John Wall last night.
On the one hand, the point guard broke Hall of Fame center Wes Unseld's franchise record of 3,822 career assists.
However, the number one overall pick back in the 2010 draft spoilt his achievement by getting himself ejected with 33.3 seconds left and his team trailing by five to the Houston Rockets.
Official Marc Davis explained the reason for Wall's second technical foul via a pool report: "After granting the team a timeout, I felt that there was contact and that he bumped me. I wasn't certain of his intent. I told him to watch himself. He looked over his shoulder and used vulgarity and inappropriate language.''
It was a crucial time in the game and the Wizards needed their best player on the floor.
The Wizards fell to 1-5 after the 114-106 defeat and Wall owned up to his error: "I didn't do a good job of helping us win."
Speaking after the game where he scored 21 points and grabbed eight dimes, Wall said: "It [the record] don't mean nothing to me right now, because I didn't win the game.
"But it's an honour, and I have a lot of basketball left to play."
