The Washington Wizards guard has scored 25 or more points in 17 consecutive games. He will have a chance to make it 18 on Sunday when Washington plays the Golden State Warriors.

Bradley Beal has been scoring at a high rate this season. He is averaging a career-high 30.3 points per game, second in the NBA. That’s impressive, regardless of what you think about Washington’s regular season record of 21-37.

But Beal has been scoring at a consistent rate. He has scored at least 10 points in every single game he has appeared in the 2019-20 season. And he has scored 25 or more points in 17 consecutive games, tying the Wizards’ franchise record set by Walt Bellamy.

Beal’s last sub-25 point game was on Jan. 17 in a 140-111 loss to the Toronto Raptors when he scored 14 points.

Tonight, the Wizards will play the lowly Golden State Warriors. Yes, Golden State beat Washington in their previous meeting on Feb. 3. However, Beal scored 43 points in that contest, so there is a good chance that he will score at least 25 points later tonight.

It is a little unfortunately that Beal is putting up these impressive numbers in a season where a playoff berth is likely out of reach. But it is still very impressive to see Beal putting up these numbers, since they are definitely a testament to how great of a player he is on the court each and every game.
