Catch-and-shoot threes? Check. Creating your own shot on the perimeter? Check. Leaners? Check.

Hot hand? Check.

If there is such a thing as a hot hand Bradley Beal had it most of Sunday night as he outscored Kevin Durant on his way to a career-best 34 points on 13-of-23 shooting and 6-of-8 from three. Beal had the jumper working and was hot all over the floor (except in the paint where he was just 2-of-5). He was hitting clutch shots and making plays.

Well, until the final play of regulation when he had a chance to ice the game and missed a floater in the paint. Oklahoma City won overtime.

Still, more nights like this from Beal will bring some wins to Washington.
