In his second game back from a wrist injury,
Bradley Beal posted a career-high with 28 points and the Washington Wizards
notched their first four-game winning streak of the season with a 102-90
victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.

Beal got plenty of help, however, as John Wall, Emeka Okafor and Nene each
contributed double-doubles to the Wizards’ fourth straight win over a playoff
caliber team.

Wall had 14 points to go with 10 assists and Okafor tallied 12 points and 10
rebounds. Nene followed Beal’s scoring effort with 21 points in addition to
recording 13 rebounds and six assists.

The Bucks, now losers of four in a row and six of their last seven, had
trouble shooting the basketball, converting just 37.9 percent of their
attempts.

Monta Ellis finished with 24 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and six
steals in the setback.
