With yet another big night in the books, Bradley Beal is averaging a league-leading 33 points per game on 47% shooting. The 27-year-old has proven himself to be one of the premier scorers in the league and can dissect any defense in front of him.

The Houston Rockets received good production out of John Wall, who finished with 29 points and 11 assists. However, the Rockets shot just 21.6% from three as a team and recorded 17 turnovers.
