Bradley Beal missed his last 5 shots in the final 2:30 minutes of the Wizards‘ 95-98 loss to the Pacers on Sunday.

After the game, Beal—who played 43 minutes—said he was tired, but that can’t be an excuse:

“It’s no excuse, man. I got to hit them shots. It’s just plain and simple. I was tired but you can’t half-ass carry a team.” […]

“Every player wants to play. There’s guys who wish they can play and don’t play, so I can’t sit here and say that I’m tired.

“If I’m on the floor, I got to produce, and it’s just plain and simple. John’s out. That’s reality. And I have to step up more. The team does.”
