It was a taciturn crowd. Inclement weather seemed to prevent about half of the 17,868 from showing up to the arena. A springtime snowstorm had blanketed the city in white, causing poor driving conditions. The Verizon Center fans had never seemed so unengaged, but fortunately, John Wall was there to engage them.
