Beal was a constant the whole night with his “off-screen jumpers.” Along with his lethal three point shot, Beal finished 10-16 with 24 points, two rebounds and four assist. Marcin Gortat finished the night with a game high 14 rebounds along with 12 points.

It was Washington’s solid start to the third quarter that pushed the lead to double digits and Detroit could never close the gap. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was Detroit’s high man with 24 points while Andre Drummond finished with 13 points and pulled down 12 rebounds.
