Washington Wizards start 0-2, Bradley Beal sets a record and still no Dwight Howard sums up the game against the Toronto Raptors. And Kawhi Leonard was out due to rest which makes the loss even worse.
To top it off, this loss comes off another closing seconds dagger, this time from Fred VanVleet who recovered a loose ball making the off-balance shot to push the lead to 115-111.
There was some joy in Saturday night’s contest, though. Bradley Beal surpassed the all-time franchise record for three-pointers made, previously held by Gilbert Arenas with 869. Beal had 32 points, three rebounds and six assists, going 6 of 11 from three-point range.
Arenas congratulated Beal via NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller through text message.
