‪John Wall steals and seals the win against the Nets (VIDEO)‬

The Wizards have been a thorn in the Nets' side all season and, on Saturday, this play from John Wall was more of a nail — as in final nail in the coffin of Washington's 101-94 win.

The Wiz led by five with just over 30 seconds remaining, thanks to a huge game off the bench from Drew Gooden, who scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter — when they finished a 14-3 run to end the game.

On this play, Joe Johnson misses the jumper, and Wall comes up with the loose ball, splits two defenders near midcourt and finishes with the slam that put the exclamation point on the Washington victory.

As the final seconds ticked off on a win that completed a season sweep of Brooklyn and moved the Wizards into sole possession of fifth place in the Eastern Conference, Wall held the ball screaming, “This is my city!”
