The Washington Wizards had one of the biggest upsets so far this NBA season last night when they beat the OKC Thunder 101-99.  Rookie guard Bradley Beal hit the game winner with only .3 seconds left on the clock.  Beal finished the game with a monster 22 points.  The win for the Wizards moves them to only 5-28, which is pretty pathetic so Beal should be proud.  Check out the video below of the game winner. The Thunder still hold one of the best records in the NBA and a second place spot in the West.  I doubt they have to much worrying to do.
