Bradley Beal went off for 36 points in a 115-112 double overtime win vs. Boston on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, a block and three triples. Beal was shooting just 36% entering Saturday so he still has a lot of room to climb up the rankings. He was considered the biggest threat to Stephen Curry’s scoring title this season and we still believe that to be the case, and tonight gives us even more confidence. The Wizards are off to an incredible start to the season at 5-1 and Beal is only getting warmed up.

Trae Young told reporters that he is frustrated by the number of "missed calls" from referees this season. This season, the NBA has implemented adjustments to officiating in hopes of cracking down on non-basketball moves designed to draw contact. The impact on Young has been dramatic early on. Last season, Young averaged 12.6 free-throw attempts per 100 possessions. This season, he is averaging 6.3 free-throw attempts per 100 possessions. "There's a lot of missed calls," Young said. "It's basketball. It's just, it feels that they're learning, and they're just -- I don't know. It's frustrating."
