It took the Washington Wizards one Summer League game to get into their groove. One night removed from being blown out of the Cox Pavilion gym by the Atlanta Hawks, the Wizards survived a furious 4th quarter comeback attempt by the Houston Rockets, winning their first game of the summer 76-70.
Top pick Bradley Beal lead the team with 14 points and was one of four Wizards to finish in double figures.
It took Chris Singleton about a quarter and a half to find some rhythm, but once he did, he was a force both offensively and on defense. He finished with 10 points.

I know the score doesn't matter, I know these games don't count, so let's get to the real reason why we found ourselves watching: Bradley Beal. The kid started off hot. He showed off his great...
As the NBA continues its Summer League in Las Vegas, Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton decided to put an NBA D-Leaguer flat on his back with a thunderous jam.
Watch as Singleton skies to the rim and throws it down hard:
Day 3 of the NBA Summper League began in forgettable fashion for the Wizards. The D-League select team they faced was on a mission to defeat all the “scrub” stereotypes and the Wizards had nothing to counter it early on. Only 90 seconds into the game when the Wizards found themselves with 3 turnovers and zero shot attempts, surrendering 9 consecutive points to the D-Leaguers...
While all eyes have been focused on Team USA’s practices and scrimmages this weekend in DC, a few NBA veterans hosted a skills clinic for children of the armed forces.
Patrick Ewing, Georghe Muresan, Lenny Wilkens, and Teresa Edwards all assisted with the clinic which held five different stations for the children to learn the fundamentals of basketball.

Washington Wizards fans should be excited about what the future holds.
