Wizards’ Bradley Beal’s hilarious gesture to Draymond Green after sinking Warriors
“It was Draymond [Green],” Beal disclosed. “The play before, he blocked my shot and I kind of traveled, so we were talking about that when Steph was at the line. Ironic that I ended up making that shot so it was kind of a ‘he owed me one.”
Green made a key defensive stop against Beal inside the paint earlier. Despite this, there was enough time for Beal to hit a tough corner three while falling away in the game’s dying seconds. The Wizards came out on top, 110-107.
In that game, Beal had a relatively quiet 20 points and added three boards and six dimes. He was one out of five from deep, but what a time to hit that one three. Meanwhile, Green had his typical game of stuffing the stat sheet with five points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and a pair of blocks.
As topsy-turvy the season has been for the Wizards, including Beal trade rumors, they still have a shot at making the play-in. Currently, they are thirteenth in the Eastern Conference with a 19-32 record.
If the team gets a few winning streaks going, Beal stays healthy, and Russel Westbrook continues to put up triple-doubles, then the Wizards just might be a surprise in the postseason.
