Matchup watch: Wall vs. Holiday. Usually ball-handling is indicative of the outcome of games. It couldn't be more true for this one. Wall has been in a funk, particularly when it comes to turnovers. Holiday, a first-time All-Star this year, is having his best season though he had six turnovers the last time these teams played. Wall, however, only had nine points in missing nine of his 12 shots and had five giveaways.
