WATCH: Bradley Beal cross Andre Drummond into next week on step-back 3

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.

When we had first began dating, you helped me conquer a fear of Ferris wheels& heights... you took me to the top of the Ferris wheel in Vegas, and asked me to be your girlfriend. 4 years later, you helped me conquer the fear of opening up, being vulnerable, and not only loving someone unconditionally, but allowing myself to be loved unconditionally as well, and asked me to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you so so much. No one else id rather spend my life with. Thank you for helping me evolve into the woman I’ve become, and for constantly challenging me to become better each and everyday. I did then, I do now, and I will FOREVER. YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!! 💍🥰 🥺🥺😩😍
