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

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.

Bradley Beal passes Wes Unseld on Wizards' all-time scoring list

Bradley Beal passes Wes Unseld on Wizards' all-time scoring list

Bradley Beal is the leader of the Wizards and now holds the mantle as the franchise player now that he's committed for at least two more years. 

In his eighth season with the Wizards, Beal continues to move up the team's all-time scoring list. Entering Monday's game against the Pistons, Beal needed 17 points to pass Wes Unseld on the Wizards' All-time scoring list, and after going into halftime tied with the Bullets legend, he finally passed him with a pull-up jumper. 

Unseld scored 10,624 points in his 13-year, Hall of Fame career with the franchise from 1968-81, and now that Beal has passed him he now sits in fourth-place on the Wizards' all-time scoring list. 

The three players ahead of him are Elvin Hayes (15,551), Jeff Malone (11,083) and John Wall (10,879). 

Since Wall is out for most if not the entire season, Beal should be able to pass him before the year is done, and there's no reason to think he can't pass Malone during next season. 

If the Wizards can convince Beal to re-up after his current contract is out, Beal could end his career as the franchise's leading scorer and maybe even the best player in the team's history if they can build a winner around him.
