What to Watch for

Can Otto Porter continue to handle the extra attention?

In years past, Otto Porter has struggled sliding into the second banana role with Bradley Beal out of the lineup, but he responded well on Friday night after Beal was ejected late in the first half. He had 15 points on 6-9 shooting, as well as a pair of rebounds and an assist in the second half.

Some of his best moments came when he was asked to be the primary option with bench lineups.

Even if Beal doesn’t get suspended, it might not be a bad idea to send a few more shot opportunities Porter’s way. He’s posting a 64.9 true shooting percentage. That’s pretty good!
