Beal, Thomas share postgame thoughts after Wizards’ loss against Rockets

Is “Braided Brad” here to stay?

The Washington Wizards played some good basketball on Thursday evening despite losing 159-158 to the Houston Rockets. They should be proud of the way they played and fought the entire game.

It remains to be seen whether Washington continues to play with that same grit and confidence they have in their first four games. But if they do, then it’s going to be a fun season for Wizards fans.

Bradley Beal had an incredible performance, scoring an impressive 46 points. He also had 6 rebounds and 8 assists. He did all of this with his new braids so it was only right we asked him if “Braided Brad” is here to stay.

We also had the chance to ask Isaiah Thomas a few questions. Coming off of his thumb injury, Thomas scored 16 points against the San Antonio Spurs last weekend. He followed that performance with 17 points last night. He seems to be fitting in quite nicely and is a leader that everyone on this team can learn from.
