Led by Bradley Beal’s career-best 42 points Monday night, the Washington Wizards held off the visiting Phoenix Suns 106-101.

Beal has scored 76 points in his last two games; he also has 30 or more in consecutive games for the first time in his five-year career.

Devin Booker had 30 points and Eric Bledsoe scored 29 for Phoenix (4-11).

Per the AP:

Beal, who scored 34 points in Saturday’s loss to Miami, had nine in the first quarter, seven in the second, 12 in the third and 14 in the fourth. He shot 14 for 22 and hit five of his 10 3-point attempts.

 

“He can be one of the best two-way players in the league, and my job is to continue to push him to strive for greatness,” (head coach Scott) Brooks said.

 

“It takes a lot of energy. It takes a lot of inner drive and determination, but I think he has the ability to be that player.”
