Efficiency wasn’t the calling card for Bradley Beal on Monday, but the Wizards rode his 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal to a road win over the Celtics.
Beal’s 10-for-25 will hurt owners, and the fact that he tossed up a doughnut from behind the arc won’t make them feel any better. He’s been struggling with his shot as of late but remains in the top-40 on the season thanks to his production in points, threes and assists. Beal’s shooting is down in all three areas (field, 3-point line, free throws) and it’s beginning to look like last year’s numbers were more the exception than the new normal. Regardless, he should be able to retain his current fantasy value.
