Daily Digits is a new daily feature we’re doing at Bullets Forever this year where we take a look at stats about the Wizards. We’ll dive into the numbers, add some context, and discuss how they affect the product on the court.
Normally, we just take a look at one stat, but today, let’s take a look at all the crazy numbers from Bradley Beal’s game against the Raptors.
- Beal joined Oscar Robertson as the only players to have two 40-15-10 games in the same season.
- Beal also had a big game on the hustle sheet. He grabbed a game-high six loose balls and had a game-high six deflections.
- Beal played 54 minutes and 36 seconds, tying Devin Booker for the most time played in a game this season, and he pulled that off even though this game only went to double-overtime, unlike Booker’s triple-overtime effort against the Wizards earlier this season.
- The last time a player logged at least 54 minutes in a game that did not go to triple-overtime was in December 2013, when Carmelo Anthony played 55:27 in a win over the Bucks.
- Beal has reached the 50-minute twice this season, and was 22 seconds away from doing it a third time in the Wizards’ overtime win over the Rockets. No other player has played over 50 minutes more than one time this season.
- The Wizards were a +4 when Beal on the floor. The Wizards were a -6 in the three minutes and 24 seconds Beal was not on the court against Toronto.
- There have only been eight games this season where a player has reached 40 points without making at least four free throws. Beal now has two of them this season.
- In a game that went two overtimes, Beal was one of only two Wizards to reach double-digits in rebounding.
- Beal became the first player to make 6 threes and have 15 assists in a loss since Steph Curry did it in January 2014 against the Timberwolves.
- Beal isn’t the first player to have a monster game in a loss to Toronto. Teams are 1-3 when a player scores over 40 against the Raptors this season.
