The two Washington Wizards players were named to the World Team for this year. On Wednesday, the NBA announced that Washington Wizards forwards Rui Hachimura and Deni Avdija were named to the Rising Stars roster for the 2020-21 NBA season which features only rookies and sophomores.
In their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Wizards got to see what happens when Bradley Beal has an off game. The Grizzlies had a physical game plan predicated on making Beal work to get the ball, and then attacking him with multiple defenders when he made a move.
Being a professional basketball player isn’t just about showing up to games and during practice. To achieve true longevity, it involves a certain degree of discipline and commitment off the court as well.
Washington can’t hang with Grit-and-Grind-Esque Memphis Tonight’s 125–111 loss began with five consecutive Russell Westbrook assists — he was involved in the team’s first 21 points (nine of which he scored).
From starter to spot minutes, Scott Brooks has to find a role for Avdija. Six-foot-nine point forwards don’t grow on trees. So when an NBA team has an opportunity to snag one, common sense says they should.

Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal scored a game-high 46 points against the Boston Celtics on Sunday, however, it was not enough for the Wizards to get the win. A late-game meltdown with gaffes on each of the final offensive possessions led to a 111-110 Washington loss.
Washington can only blame themselves after blowing five-point lead in latter stages of the match at The Garden. Even with Russell Westbrook playing in the second leg of a back-to-back and 46 points from Bradley Beal, the Wizards fell to a painful 111–110 loss to the Celtics Sunday night.
Russell Westbrook had 19 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists in the Washington Wizards’ 128-112 over the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday. With his 10th triple-double of the season, Westbrook has already set the Wizards’ single-season record.
With the 7th win in 8 games, the Wizards are on a roll. Their only loss was as much to the schedule as it was to the Los Angeles Clippers. Even including the defeat, Washington has a +4.6 efficiency differential over the last eight games.
There’s no denying that Bradley Beal is one of the most unstoppable scorers in the world. He’s torching opposing defenses night and night out, and once he gets into that zone, there’s just nothing any player can do to contain him.
