WATCH: Wizards' Jerome Robinson hits game-winning three to stun Nets

WATCH: Wizards' Jerome Robinson hits game-winning three to stun Nets

On a night where the Wizards coughed up an 18-point lead and Bradley Beal recorded yet another 30-point performance, second-year guard Jerome Robinson was the hero Wednesday night. 

With all the attention on Beal in the closing seconds, Robinson was left wide open on the left wing with the Wizards down one. 

Despite coming off two straight 50-point games and a couple monster fourth quarters, Beal trusted in his teammate and dished him the ball with the game on the line.

Robinson, who was playing in his seventh game with the Wizards after he was acquired at the trade deadline, did not let Beal down. 

Not only did Robinson hit the big shot, but he secured the rebound on the Nets' final possession and knocked down both free throws to seal it. Clutch. 

It was a much-needed win for the Wizards, who had lost three consecutive games returning from the All-Star break and were at risk of falling too far behind the Magic for the eighth-seed in the Eastern Conference. 

Now, they'll go on a crucial west-coast trip to play the Jazz, Warriors, Kings and Trail Blazers that could ultimately decide their postseason fate.

Hachimura, the 13 seed, took on four-seed Mitchell in the NBA 2K20 Player Tournament, and came out with a 74-71 victory. 

The winner of the tournament receives $100,000 to go to a charity in support of coronavirus relief efforts.
