1. Bradley Beal goes off again at Madison Square Garden in Wizards' 102-91 win
Sure, John Wall's dazzling performance took most of the headlines on Thursday, as it should have, but it just wouldn't be a trip to play the Knicks unless Bradley Beal had another great game. He delivered with 17 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds. Unfortunately, there wasn't any need for Beal's late game heroics, like there has been in previous Wizards-Knicks games, but still, all in all it was another satisfying trip to the Garden for Beal.
(Yes, Paul Pierce also has a pretty good history at Madison Square Garden, but he only scored 3 points Thursday, so let's not talk about that.)
To the recaps!
2. John Wall was mic'd up for the game
No, this video doesn't include any of what Wall had to say to Quincy Acy during their scuffle, but it's still fun to hear what he has to say while interacting with his teammates and fans before the game.
3. Wall vs. Acy was not the best fight on Christmas
If you were not on Twitter yesterday afternoon, you missed one of the most absurd Twitter fights you'll ever see. Don't get us wrong, we've been a part of many feisty holiday celebrations, but yesterday has to be the most contentious holiday we can remember. Even we got sucked into the chippiness.
