Bradley Beal is a very unfortunate man.
After scoring impressive back-to-back 50-point games which he did not win, the Washington Wizards guard received a drug test from the NBA as well.
Beal's explosive scoring earned a the box-and-one treatment against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. He ended up scoring 30 points that night and luckily, they won a game.
Beal said that he hadn’t seen that kind of defense since his high school days.
Bradley Beal consistently playing like an All-Star for Wizards
Beal's numbers wouldn't be considered "empty stats on a bad team." It just so happens that his play has never been more evident on this season's team.
Worst part is they lost to teams at the bottom of the standings such as the Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors.
Beal averaged 31.2 points in those six wins and 41.4 points in the seven losses in that 13-game stretch. That includes the 53 points in a loss to the Chicago Bulls and 55 points in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
His performances were so unreal that the NBA mandated he undergo drug testing despite losing those monster games.
Expect Beal to be beaten up by the end of the season if more of those box-and-ones will come.
