Washington Wizards Game 2 Review: Wiz come back to beat Bucks on the road

BRADLEY BEAL SCORES 14 IN FOURTH QUARTER TO LEAD COMEBACK

Bradley Beal scored 26 points, including hitting 5 of 6 beyond the arc, and had 14 fourth quarter points to lead the visiting Washington Wizards in a 13-point comeback win over the Milwaukee Bucks 118-113.

John Wall had 19 points and 10 assists, while hitting all 10 free throw attempts and Ramon Sessions added 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting off the bench — including 11 in the pivotal fourth quarter, when the Wizards outscored the Bucks 36-21.

Beal hit a 3-pointer with 6:43 left which capped an 11-point Wizards run, giving the road team its first lead of the game since 2-0.

The Wizards had a late 9-2 run — on a pair of 3s by Beal and one by Sessions — that proved to be deciding sequence.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 27 points and nine rebounds. Greg Monroe added 20 points on 10-of-14 shooting.

NEXT GAME: The Wizards host the New York Knicks in the home opener Saturday night.
