In fact Beal is pissed off. The 2-time All-Star totaled 47 factors, six assists, 4 rebounds and 4 steals in opposition to New Orleans, but his group was by no means actually within the recreation. 

And that’s an all-too-familiar feeling for Beal. He’s the primary participant in NBA historical past to lose 10 straight video games during which he scored 40 or extra factors, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Regardless of Beal main the league in factors per recreation (35.4, practically 5 factors greater than second-place Kevin Durant), Washington holds the worst document within the NBA at 3-11. Russell Westbrook, who sat out Wednesday’s recreation, has appeared like a shell of himself, and the remainder of the roster has been wrecked by accidents and points with well being and security protocols.

Beal hasn’t been shy about showing his exasperation — he admitted his physique language might be higher — fueling hypothesis that he’ll finally demand a commerce. Nevertheless, Beal continues to resist feeding into the rumors.

“It is robust as a result of we wish to win, and I wish to win. This is the reason I stayed,” Beal mentioned, referencing the two-year contract extension he signed with the Wizards in 2019. “I wish to win. I figured that is the place I can get it carried out.”

Sadly for Beal, the one factor the Wizards have carried out this season is discovered new methods to waste his greatest performances.
