Bradley Beal thinks Wizards could have given the Cavs a run for their money

Losing in the playoffs is tough, especially when you think you could have done some damage in the next round. That's how Bradley Beal feels about the Wizards losing in Game 7 to the Boston Celtics on Monday night. If they won, they would have met the Cleveland Cavaliers and Beal would have liked their chances.

Beal expressed those thoughts in a 1-on-1 interview with CSN's Chris Miller. The full interview will air during the 6 p.m. SportsNet Central on Thursday night on CSN.

Here is what Beal said about the Cavs:

"Cleveland didn’t want to see us. I always said that. I felt like that’s the reason they didn’t play us in the second round. They didn’t want to see us in the second round," he said. "If they were going to go down, they were going to go down in the conference finals. They didn’t want to go down in the second round."
