He has 108 points his last 2 games. Last night was super impressive though. One thing to do that against Chicago, another against Milwaukee, while holding Giannis to 22 points in an OT contest. Of course, giving up 40 to Middleton helps explain some of that. And of course, they lose.

Yea, they are one of the worst defensive teams I have ever seen.

He joins James Harden and Wilt Chamberlain as the only 3 players in NBA history to net 53+ points in consecutive games. 

 

I like his quote after the game though, when asked how it felt to post back-to-back career high games: "Terrible, honestly. I'm a winner, so you can throw those 55 out with the last 53."

I like the comment.  I know a lot of people like James Harden but in my opinion, he is what is wrong with the NBA today.  To m any guys putting themselves ahead of the team, and the star players having way to much control on how the team plays the game.  Hopefully Beal does not go down that road.

I think Beal's is definitely out of necessity. The Wizards are basically Beal + a bunch of spare parts that have the upside to become something right now. Bertans has been refreshing, but he wasn't playing last night. 

 

Hopefully once Wall is back, he's at least somewhat of the same player. And also has received the memo that he's no longer first banana in DC anymore.

He was also the first to hit 50 in back-to-back games since Kobe did it - and he did it on the day of his memorial, and on 2/24. Gotta love sports.

John Wall sends a warning shot to the NBA: “I’m gonna be better than what I was before and that’s the scary part...they ain’t even get the best of John Wall yet.”

Hopefully he gets to show everyone, sooner rather than later, but until then, it is just talk.

Wizards' Wall: '110%' but still working at rehab

 

The RingerBradley Beal on the Nets Sounds Good, but Does It Make Sense?
