It has been written by many that Bradley Beal was going to have a breakout year, but now we are starting to see the proof in the pudding. Actually hate that I just used that expression but kind of like it there. Had a douchebag teacher in high school who would use that every day; what a freaking jerk.
Sorry back to the point.
Beal scored 29 points tonight in what resulted in a rare overtime win for the Wizards. It was the defense though that made the difference and secured the victory.
“They both ended up scoring four, so you don’t have to worry about writing that story.” said coach Randy Wittman on the great defense on Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Wittman was on the early coaching hot seat with three straight losses, but the seat has cooled a bit since then thankfully for the ball coach.
Thanks to the tweet below for the update.

Marcin Gortat going for 25 points is huge and if he can be a difference maker then we woulc be looking at a playoff team. Holding Garnett and Pierce is no joke defensively, and if they can continue to progress on the offensive end then this is a group that could do some real damage.
