WATCH: Andre Drummond hilariously misses dunk vs. Wizards

Andre Drummond had a rough afternoon Monday against the Wizards. 

In the first quarter, he got crossed out of his shoes by Bradley Beal for a three. 

Then in the second half, he drove right past Thomas Bryant to get to the rim, only to botch the one-handed slam. 

With Rui Hachimura, Moe Wagner and Anzejs Pasecniks out Monday, Drummond could have been in line for a monster performance. 

Little did he know the Capital One Arena rims were not planning on being kind in this game.

Bradley Beal didn't take long to add to his highlight reel Monday afternoon.

Beal just reminded Pistons' center Andre Drummond that he really shouldn't be out on the perimeter while on defense. 

After crossing up Drummond, Beal hit him with a step-back three and then reminded him that you should really slide your feet on defense. 

Beal is clearly having himself a week after getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend on Sunday.

Hopefully, Drummond learned his lesson.
