Washington Wizards DFS Notes

Bradley Beal hit 13-of-23 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 33 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, a steal and six turnovers in 41 minutes of Sunday's 125-118 Game 1 loss to the Sixers in the opening round of the playoffs. Russell Westbrook hit 7-of-17 shots for 16 points, five rebounds, 14 assists, a block and six turnovers in the loss, while Daniel Gafford hit all six of his shots and scored 12 points with six boards and a block in just 20 minutes today. Game 2 is set for Wednesday night at 7 p.m. The good news is that Beal will have a lot of time to rest his shaky hamstring before trying to get a win in Game 2.
