Bradley Beal was once again excellent for the Washington Wizards in the play-in game vs. Indiana, where the DC franchise clinched a playoff berth for the first time in four years.

The Wizards got over a bumpy start in the regular season thanks to Beal’s scoring and Russell Westbrook all-around performances.

Beal called the win over Indiana ‘the most beautiful thing’ the Wizards have done as a team this season as they set to face the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday.

(via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk):

He also addressed the situation with his hamstring injury that caused him to miss three of the Washington’s last four regular season games.

Beal averaged 31.3 points per game during the regular season coming second behind Stephen Curry, who won the scoring title this year.

The Wizards will need Beal at his best to have any chance at pulling off the seven-game series upset against the top seed of the East.
