No player in Washington Wizards/Bullets history has ever won the NBA scoring title. Bradley Beal has a chance to make history by doing just that in the 2020-21 campaign, but he has a formidable obstacle in that quest: Steph Curry.
James Harden won last season’s scoring title by a wide margin (nearly four points per game), but this season, Curry and Beal are neck-and-neck with just a handful of games remaining for Washington and Golden State. Can Beal make history? Will Curry’s comeback enable him to grab his second scoring title?
Here’s where each superstar stands in the race:
Beal vs. Curry: Where they stand
Steph Curry: 31.8 ppg (1,969 points, 62 games played)
Bradley Beal: 31.4 ppg (1,853 points, 59 games played)
Wizards and Warriors: The road ahead
Wizards: 3 games remaining (next matchup: vs. Hawks, Wednesday, May 12, 7 p.m. ET)
Warriors: 2 games remaining (next matchup: vs Pelicans, Friday, May 12, 9:30 p.m. ET)
