Beal posted 38 points (12-22 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 46 minutes in a 115-105 Game 7 loss to the Celtics on Monday. Beal finished Game 7 with individual post-season highs in points, threes and free throws, but that will come as little comfort since he and the Wizards didn't quite have enough to take out the Celtics in Game 7. The Washington shooting guard had an up-and-down series finishing with three four games over 25 points and three games under 17 points.
Beal totaled 33 points (15-26 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 43 minutes during a 92-91 win over the Celtics on Friday. Beal had his best game of these playoffs with the team's season on the line as he finished with a game-high 33 points. The five assists also marked his highest total so far in these playoffs. Beal has had difficulty stringing together two consecutive good offensive outings in this series so far, but after this performance with the team facing elimination, we'd expect another good one from him in Game 7.
Beal scored 16 points (7-19 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with four assists, two rebounds, one block and one steal across 35 minutes in a 123-101 Game 5 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday. Beal has been an inconsistent scorer all series, finishing 3-of-5 games with fewer than 20 points and shooting below 40 percent in each of those three games. His scoring average is down over six points since the conclusion of Washington's Round 1 series against the Hawks, and the Wizards will need more from Beal if they hope to extend the series to seven games with a win in Washington for Game 6.
Beal contributed 29 points (11-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 121-102 win over the Celtics in Game 4. Beal finished with game highs in scoring and minutes, and he was extremely efficient on offense. Moreover, he did a superb job on the defensive end, which helped the Wizards build a huge lead in the third quarter. Beal had scored just 25 points combined in the last two games, but otherwise he has been filling it up in these playoffs, averaging 23.0 points per through 10 appearances.
Beal tallied 31 points (11-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 34 minutes in Friday's 115-99 win over the Hawks in Game 6. Beal didn't play as many minutes as his fellow guard John Wall, but he made the most of his time, picking up three steals defensively and limiting himself to just three turnovers. The efficiency and superb defense resulted in the highest plus-minus ratio on the team, which was a whopping positive 32. If Beal can continue to limit his mistakes, and he and Wall continue to play and score like they did in this series, they will have a good chance against the guard-led Celtics.
