Washington Wizards second-year guard Bradley Beal came into the NBA touted as one of the most talented players in the 2012 draft. So far in 2013, Beal is proving the analysts correct, and went off for 34 points on the road Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder:
Beal hit 13 of his 23 shot attempts, including knocking down 6-8 from three-point range. Sunday’s performance upped Beal’s scoring average to 21 points per game and he’s shooting a blistering 47.6% from long range through six games. Including last season, Beal is shooting over 48% from three since January 1, 2013.
There’s a lot of reasons why the Wizards are projected to make some noise in the Eastern Conference this season, and Beal’s ability to shoot the rock from deep is a big part of it.
