Beal: Wizards are Eastern Conference's team to beat

Adjust Comment Print

J.R. Smith fired back at Beal at the time saying they should've taken care of business in the second round against the Boston Celtics if they wanted a shot at the Cavs.

If the Wizards can play defense throughout the whole game, instead of when they see they're about to lose in the finals minutes, then Beal is correct - the Wizards are the best team in the East.

Cleveland went 4-7 in the final 11 games of the 2016-17 regular season and fell to the No. 2 seed in the East. I'm not going to sit here and do that.

The fact that Beal has such confidence in his team is a very good sign.

His post ends with the following quote: "our goal from the beginning has been to bring better technology to the world". The Shenzhen-based company unveiled the OnePlus 3T a year ago , for instance, as the new version of the OnePlus 3 .

The Wizards were the #4 seed, and they pushed the Celtics to seven games in the Eastern Conference finals. And it's never too early to try to get in LeBron's head, although as we've seen for the last seven years, the Eastern Conference is basically won by LeBron. Find a topic you're passionate about, and jump right in. So that's kind of how we go back and forth. I believe in us, and I'm confident in us, and we're going to compete with the best of them. "And I think if you look at a year ago, people might say they did or didn't".

Wall, who has started all eight games while averaging 20.5 points and 10.4 assists per game, received treatment Saturday on his sore and sprained shoulder but is considered "questionable" to play ahead of the Washington Wizards' Sunday night matchup against the Toronto Raptors, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. In 2013 IN came out determined to capture the #1 seed IN the East, which they eventually did, despite imploding en route to a six game loss IN the conference finals. Period. They didn't push for that top seed because, to them, it was irrelevant.

Beal countered the Wizards have to "be on our P's and Q's to the T".

ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported after that the X-ray was negative.
