WASHINGTON -- One night after scoring a career-high 53 points against the Chicago Bulls, Bradley Beal topped that with 55 points against the Milwaukee Bucks, and somehow the Wizards lost both games.
That produced a few statistical anomalies, as you can imagine. Dropping 108 points in two games also put Beal in some very exclusive company.
Here are some stats to put Beal's last two days into perspective...
**Beal is just the third player in NBA history to have 53 points or more in consecutive games. The other two players to accomplish the feat are Wilt Chamberlain and James Harden, two of the greatest scorers ever. Chamberlain did it 16 times, while Harden has done it three times.
**Beal is the first player to score 53-plus in two straight and lose both games since Chamberlain in 1962. It has been 58 years since it happened.
**Beal is now tied with Gilbert Arenas for the most 50-point games in Wizards/Bullets franchise history with three, but he is the first player in franchise history to have 50 or more in consecutive games.
**Beal became the first player with 50-plus points on back-to-back nights since Kobe Bryant in March of 2007. He is just the sixth player ever to accomplish the feat, joining Bryant, Michael Jordan, Bernard King, Elgin Baylor and Chamberlain.
**Beal's 108 points in two games are also the most combined on consecutive nights since Bryant in March of 2007. Bryant had 110, scoring 60 in the first game and 50 in the second. Bryant's funeral happened to be on Monday, the second day of Beal's scoring barrage.
**Beal's 55 points against the Bucks included eight threes. It was just the 14th time in NBA history a player has done that. The others to accomplish the feat: Bryant, Harden, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson.
**Beal raised his season scoring average a full point, from 29.1 to 30.1 with his two 50-point games. That leads the Eastern Conference and is second only to Harden's 35.3 in the NBA this season. It is a legal requirement to now note that he was not an All-Star.
