Beal lifts Wizards past Blazers with 51 points

(The Sports Xchange) – Bradley Beal scored a career-high 51 points as the Washington Wizards trounced the Portland Trail Blazers 106-92 Tuesday night.

Beal made 21 of 37 shots from the field, hitting 5 of 12 3-pointers while surpassing his previous career high of 42. Beal’s scoring made up for the absence of John Wall, who missed his sixth straight game with a knee injury.

Thanks largely to Beal, the Wizards atoned for a 116-69 loss at Utah on Monday night.

Damian Lillard collected 30 points, eight rebounds and nine assists for the Trail Blazers, who lost their third straight game — all at home. Jusuf Nurkic added 15 points and nine rebounds before leaving with a leg injury in the fourth quarter.

Thunder 100, Jazz 94

Russell Westbrook had his seventh triple-double of the season, finishing with 34 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds, and Oklahoma City overcome a 17-point deficit with four minutes left in the third quarter.

Utah had its six-game winning streak snapped, while the Thunder recorded their third straight win.

Donovan Mitchell had 31 points for Utah, which led 72-55 at the 4:13 mark of the third quarter but scored just 14 points in the fourth quarter.

Raptors 126, Suns 113

Not only did Phoenix lose, but its top scorer, Devin Booker, was carried from the court with 2:40 left in the fourth quarter. The initial diagnosis was a strained left adductor.

Booker, who scored a season-best 46 points Monday in the victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, had 19 points, eight rebounds and five rebounds against the Raptors.

Kyle Lowry scored 20 points and added 10 assists and six rebounds for the Raptors, who have won four games in a row. The Suns picked up four technical fouls in the game.
