Bradley Beal was ice cold in knocking down the game-winning three for the Wizards against the Spurs

The Washington Wizards jumped out to a big lead against the San Antonio Spurs in the first quarter, but the Spurs fought back and actually took a lead into halftime. However, the Wizards stayed in the fight and, with one possession left in the action, it was tied 99-99. Bradley Beal had no intentions of letting the game go into overtime.

As time was winding down, John Wall kicked it to Beal on the right wing with LaMarcus Aldridge coming out to the perimeter to defend. Beal took a hard step to toward the baseline before crossing over to his left, which sent Aldridge flying by the Wizards guard. From there, Beal pulled up and icily drilled a three for the win:

Everything about that play on the part of Beal was a thing of beauty. Even more than knocking down a clutch shot and making it look easy is the fact that he absolutely destroyed Aldridge on that jab step. I guess the Spurs didn’t give Aldridge a max deal to try and defend perimeter players on key possessions.

Beal has been tearing it up to start the 2015-16 season. Coming into Wednesday, he was averaging 25.3 points per game on 46.6 percent shooting from the floor and 50 percent from long-range. Including the game-winner, he finished the game against the Spurs with 25 points on 11-22 shooting from the field and 3-8 shooting from three. If he keeps up this type of performance and performs like this in the clutch, the league should watch out for the Wizards.
