Washington Wizards Rout Kings to Complete Four-Game West Coast Trip


The Washington Wizards, led by superstar John Wall, crushed the Sacramento Kings Sunday night to complete their West Coast trip.

The Washington Wizards extremely early West Coast trip, which had their fair share of ups and downs including a heated altercation between Bradley Beal and Warriors forward Draymond Green.

However, the Wizards concluded their four-game road trip out West with a crushing victory over the Sacramento Kings, 110-83 on Sunday night to grab their fourth win of the season.

Four-time All-Star John Wall guided the Wizards to a 13-0 lead to begin the game after converting on his first four shot attempts, along with three 3-pointers. The Wizards maintained control and never trailed the young Kings team to complete the West Coast swing on a high note.

Wall ended with a team-high 19 points, along with five 3-pointers and an assist shy of his fourth double-double. Beal returned from his short-lived night following his ejection in the Wizards collapse to the Warriors with 15 points in 29 minutes.

After an average road trip that featured wins in the opener against the Denver Nuggets and tonight’s finale versus the Kings, the Wizards return home with three days off before hosting the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night.

Obviously the biggest story of the trip was Beal and Green’s altercation during Friday’s game. As a result of the altercation, Beal was fined $50,000 and Green was fined $25,000. Neither player was suspended.

Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris and guard Carrick Felix did receive one-game suspensions, however, for leaving the bench area during the altercation. Morris will serve his suspension once he’s finished recovering from his sports hernia surgery from September.

The fact that Beal wasn’t suspended was a surprise to him. “I’m expecting a suspension,” he told The Washington Post.  “Because of our NBA and the entire situation of it. When you look at film, they’re going to think I purposely tried to hit [Green] in the face. The way it looks, they’re going to interpret it that way. So, I’m expecting it.”
