D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray helped break ground for a desperately needed health clinic in the city's poorest ward Thursday. News4's Tom Sherwood reports.
Down seven points with almost a minute left in the fourth quarter, Bradley Beal was ejected from the Wizards-Mavericks game at American Airlines Center.

Beal was initially fouled on a play against Kristaps Porzingis. The Wizards guard received his first of back-to-back technicals after ensuing contact with Mavs guard Luka Dončić, where they both were given technical fouls. Beal clapped at the assessment and waved off the referees as they doled out a second technical foul and ejected him from the game.
We like this explanation much better. Ultimately, the Wizards lost 108-100 in Dallas to open their 2019 NBA season.
Beal was previously ejected in Game 4, Round 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, spurring the Wizards to tie the series 2-2 against the eventual NBA Champions, Toronto Raptors.

We have history, y'all. Scott Brooks just used the first challenge ever by a Wizards/Bullets coach.— Chase Hughes (@ChaseHughesNBCS) October 24, 2019
While the challenge was unsuccessful and the call stood, knowing that the possibility of an overturned call is out there this season should make for some interesting moments.
