Washington point guard John Wall had a monster game in the Wizards' 133-132 double overtime victory over the Boston Celtics on Monday.

Yet when it came time for his post-game comments, Wall wasn’t interested in discussing his 26 points and 17 assists he put on the Celtics.

Instead, an emotional Wall dedicated the win to 6-year-old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson, a little girl he had befriended who died of leukemia Monday morning.

Wall then tweeted out these touching photos.
