Bradley Beal scored a team-high 27 points on Wednesday against the Hawks, adding five rebounds, one assist, three steals and three blocks.
Beal was everywhere in this one, and while he couldn’t find his rhythm from downtown (he shot just 1-of-9 from 3-point range) he more than made up for it with precise drives and defensive intensity. He was incredibly efficient inside the arc, where he shot 10-for-13, getting to the rack and draining midrange jumpers. The Wizards now lead the series 3-2, and will look to close out the Hawks in Atlanta on Friday.
