The Wizards enter Wednesday's matchup with the Nets having lost three straight games since the All-Star break, but not all losses are created equal.
First, they fell at home to the struggling Cavaliers, followed by a road loss to the also-struggling Bulls. Then, they took the Bucks, the best team in basketball, to overtime in a thrilling 137-134 loss Monday night.
The real story, though, is the recent play of Bradley Beal. The Wizards' star has scored at least 25 points in 15 straight games, the second-longest streak in team history.
More importantly, he dropped 53 and 55 points in back-to-back nights Sunday and Monday. He's the first NBA player to reach 50 points in back-to-back losses in more than 50 years, and he has the most combined points in back-to-back games in franchise history.
The biggest question Wednesday night will be what he has in store for a follow up. Here is everything you need to know.
