Wednesday April 22nd, 2015

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal said the Toronto Raptors "think that we're some punks" at halftime of Game 2 on Tuesday night.

The Wizards took Game 1 of the series on Saturday, 93-86. Washington then built a 60-49 halftime lead behind 20 points from Beal in Game 2 in Toronto.

"[The Raptors] think that we’re some punks. They think that they can push around. But we're not rolling," Beal said during a halftime interview.


The Wizards would go on to win the game, 117-106, to go up 2-0 in the series. Beal led all scorers with 28 points, while John Wall scored 26 points and dished out 17 assists. DeMar DeRozan and Louis Williams each scored 20 for the Raptors.
