Bradley Beal had 25 points to lead all Wizards and played good defense on Kevin Martin all night. John Wall was more crucial yet — he tied his career high with 16 assists, including one to Martell Webster for the game winner, plus he had a key jumper down the stretch himself.
Washington got the backcourt it has counted on Tuesday night, and with it came a come-from-behind win over a good Minnesota team. I’m sure Timberwolves fans will argue their team took their foot off the gas, but Washington was ready to take advantage and did. They made their own luck.
Wall the distributor is a good thing for Washington, as is the Wizards team that got out and ran in the second half Tuesday. More of that, please.
