At some point during an inconsistent, up-and-down season, frustration almost always boils over.
That may have been the case for Bradley Beal following Wednesday night's overtime loss to the Bulls in Chicago.
We just didn't want to win.
To say Washington has had a lot of moving parts through 72 games would be the understatement of the year. We're talking about a team that has lost John Wall and Dwight Howard (not officially) to season-ending injuries and traded away Otto Porter Jr., Markieff Morris, and Austin Rivers.
Wednesday night's starting lineup featured Bobby Portis, Trevor Ariza, Jeff Green, Bradley Beal, and Tomas Satoransky. That's certainly not what Scott Brooks envisioned in November.
Being that there are so many new pieces, each of which finds himself in a different situation contract-wise, Beal was asked whether he feels like he needs to remind his teammates about the importance of a sense of urgency.
"I shouldn't have to but I need to. We have 10 games left"
The two-time NBA All-Star ended his media availability, as he's so often done this season, by holding himself accountable while still making his point clear.
"We got to be better. That’s all I can say. It starts with me. We got to be better. Myself included.”
Beal finished with 27 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals all while logging 44 minutes.
