Beal tallied 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 17 minutes Tuesday against the Celtics. It was reported before the game that Beal wouldn't see "a lot" of minutes in the season finale, but he still managed to post a solid final line. The All-Star shooting guard averaged 25.7 points, 5.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds over 81 matchups during the 2018-2019 campaign, although the season will end in disappointment for the Wizards, who were eliminated from playoff contention weeks before the finale.
Coach Scott Brooks noted he's not going to play Beal "a lot" of minutes Tuesday against the Celtics, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Beal, in what marks the Wizards' final game of the season, will be on the court for a limited amount of time. The move doesn't come as a surprise considering he's seen fewer than 24 minutes in two of the past three games.
Beal ended with 13 points (5-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 23 minutes during Sunday's 113-110 loss to New York. Beal saw limited minutes Sunday, finishing with 13 points in just 23 minutes. The Wizards are simply turning up right now and with nothing to play for, are certainly going to limit Beal down the stretch. He has had a fantastic season and with John Wall (Achilles) set to miss the majority of next season, Beal could find himself as a potential target towards the backend of the first round.
Beal registered 25 points (9-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds and five assists over 31 minutes Friday against San Antonio. Beal turned in another solid scoring effort, but the Wizards would fall 129-112. Despite being eliminated from the postseason, the 25-year-old guard has continued to produce at a high level. Beal is averaging 25.3 points along with 4.7 dimes over his previous 10 games.
Beal had 34 points (13-25 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-10 FT), six assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 128-124 loss to the Jazz. Beal had been questionable heading into Friday but took his place in the starting lineup, finishing with 34 points in 39 minutes. There is continued discussion around potentially resting Beal down the stretch and perhaps Sunday will be that day. Owners are going to have to simply hope he takes the floor on what will be the final day of the season for many. Looking ahead to next season, Beal is likely to be a player to target in the second round of many drafts, especially with John Wall (Achilles) set to miss the majority of the season.
