Bradley Beal had a phenomenal showing on Wednesday night, dropping 36 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and four triples while shooting 14-of-22 from deep in Washington’s comeback win over the Knicks.
The Wiz were down by as much as 27 in the first half but roared back and went into the final frame with a lead thanks to a 39-15 third quarter. Quality of competition factors in but Beal was simply masterful in bringing them back from the brink and got just about whatever he wanted all night. He’s a complete monster whenever John Wall is on the sidelines, and he’ll be able to ride the next few weeks into easy early-round value. Beal’s owners should just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
