The Wizards, Celtics, and Raptors are in a push down the stretch to avoid the four seed (read: play the Cavaliers in the second round), trying to set up a potentially deep playoff run.
Bradley Beal was the Wizards’ best player down the stretch and into overtime against the Kings Friday night. What was driving him?
Beal put up 38 points and had 10 rebounds on the night.
Beal and the Wizards are now in a virtual tie with Boston, 2.5 games up on Toronto (the Wizards and Celtics are 2.5 back of the Cavaliers).
