The Washington Wizards head home to D.C. now facing an uphill climb in their first-round playoff series with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Bradley Beal scored 33 points for the second straight contest, but overall Game 2 was not one to remember for the Wiz. The 120-95 loss puts the Wiz in a 0-2 hole to start the series, but it was certainly not without its positives, led by a productive performance from No. 3.

While the team shot just 40 percent from the field, Brad was able to have success against whatever the Sixers threw at him, going 14-of-28 from the field with three rebounds and four assists. It marked the fourth time this season that Brad has scored at least 30 points against the Sixers. 

After the game, No. 3 felt the area of emphasis for the next game was for the Wiz to lock in defensively and to keep their head up for a series that is far from over. 

“This is a long series and anything can happen,” Brad said. “So it’s just staying in and taking it a game at a time because what’s happened has happened.”

The Wizards face a crucial Game 3 at home on Saturday, May 29. Coverage will begin at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN.
