Bradley Beal could tell early in the first quarter that the rebuilding Atlanta Hawks had no answer for him.
“Just being confident, just being aggressive,” he said. “Getting to the free throw line helped me out a lot. Being aggressive in that aspect. Just pretty much taking what they gave me.”
Beal scored a season-high 36 points, Otto Porter Jr. had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards won their third straight game with a 131-117 victory over Atlanta on Wednesday night.
