The Wizards should have been given a chance to tie against Portland

The NBA’s Last Two Minute report from last night’s game against Portland shows Bradley Beal should have been given a chance to tie the game.

The Trail Blazers were up 108-105 when Beal attempted a three-pointer with less than a second left in the game. He missed the shot and the Wizards lost, but the report indicates a foul should have been called on Portland point guard Shabazz Napier.

The report states, "Napier (POR) does not maintain a legal vertical position and brings his arms forward, making contact to Beal's (WAS) arm on the jump shot attempt." If that foul had been called, Beal would have given three free throws and a very good chance to send the game into overtime. You can view the full report here.

However frustrating, the game should not have come down to this call in the first place. Despite playing without John Wall, who is expected to be out for two weeks, the Wizards had a 10-point lead to start the fourth quarter. If you look at the numbers compared to last season, blowing leads has become an unfortunate trend for this Wizards team. They will have to find a way to maintain momentum into the fourth quarter if they are going to stop giving up winnable games.

Kirk Cousins shares first photo of new baby, looks like he's loving fatherhood

Last Friday, Kirk Cousins and his wife, Julie, welcomed their first child to the world.

Kirk left practice in a hurry to get to the hospital in time for his son Cooper to be born. However, he didn’t have long to spend with Julie and the baby before getting back to practice and having to leave for Kansas City.

Now that the Redskins are back in DC and on a bye week, it looks like Kirk is getting to enjoy being a father.

Kirk posted this photo Tuesday night with Cooper and their goldendoodle, Bentley. Hopefully, he’s able to have lots of moments like this one before getting back to practice.
