News: Sessions contributed eight points (2-7 FG, 4-5 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and a steal over 22 minutes in Friday's 115-104 loss to the Knicks.
Impact: Sessions received the bulk of the action off the bench as the backup point guard to John Wall, with teammate Gary Neal close behind with 19 minutes. Although he did not come close to matching the double-double he posted Tuesday in a considerably high-paced matchup against the Sixers, Sessions established a generally solid track record with the Wizards in 2014-15 after the mid-season trade that brought him from the Kings. His past performance will earn him a legitimate opportunity to lay claim to the primary backup point guard role, but a quality veteran like Neal should serve as formidable competition throughout the preseason.
