Oklahoma City Thunder
WASHINGTON -- Bradley Beal's one-handed, floating jumper with 0.3 seconds remaining propelled the Washington Wizards, owners of the NBA's worst record, to a stunning 101-99 win over the league-leading Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. Beal, a 19-year-old rookie, scored 22 points, including a four-point play in the third quarter. The Wizards (5-28) won their second straight over the Thunder (26-8) and snapped a six-game losing streak. The outcome was even more surprising considering Washington played without leading scorers Jordan Crawford and Nene. Washington pulled ahead with a 23-6 second-half run, then led by 10 in the fourth quarter. Martell Webster (22 points) completed a four-point play with 1:43 remaining to give the Wizards a 99-94 lead. After Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka hit a jumper and Washington missed two shots, Thunder star Kevin Durant, playing in his hometown, drained a game-tying 3-pointer with 36 seconds remaining. A.J. Price misfired on the Wizar...

Beal’s role when...

Being sidelined all season with a stress injury to his left patella has been extremely frustrating for former Kentucky guard John Wall. His Washington Wizards have fallen to an NBA worst 4-27 record, and all he was able to do was watch.
