Bradley Beal-Spencer Dinwiddie issues addressed by Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr.

Washington Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. has revealed the truth about how Bradley Beal and Spencer Dinwiddie’s co-existence.

With star player Bradley Beal now in health and safety protocol, the obvious challenge for the Wizards is to find a consistent scorer who can score in bunches at any even day.

Stating the obvious, Spencer Dinwiddie had to step up, and he didn’t fail to deliver, having led the Wizards to a stunning 124-117 win over the New York Knicks Thursday.

Corey Kispert exploded to a career-high 20 point-performance but it was Dinwiddie who spearheaded Washington to a victory that saw the team extending its record to 4-0 in games without Beal with his double-double 21 points and 12 rebounds.

The problem is, Dinwiddie and Beal are at their best without the other inside the court, garnering a -8.4 rating as a duo. Addressing the subject, coach Unseld Jr. admitted that he’s hoping he, Dinwiddie and Beal will soon find a way to always get the best out of one another.

“I think it’s just a constant conversation with myself and him, Brad and him. It’s going to be on all three of us to figure out the best way to do it. But it’s there, we know we have it. They’ve shown at times to be able to do it on the floor,” Unseld Jr. said via NBC Sports.

“You can look at the numbers and say one produces a lot more when the other is not there, but that to me doesn’t really have anything to do with the level of aggression. Whether a guy makes shots, okay. I think there’s a way we can kind of get both and find that middle ground where both guys are aggressive.”

The Wizards will try to win another game without Beal when they face the Sixers on Sunday.
