Bradley Beal says Josh Okogie caused his third quarter takeover: 'It's his fault'
Beal says Okogie caused his takeover in the third quarter: "It's His Fault" originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
In the second half of the Wizards' win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Bradley Beal had 13 points. A quarter later he was 30.
What caused its hot phase? That would be Minnesota's Josh Okogie.
The third-year player shared a few words with Beal in the third quarter, confident he had what it takes to slow the All-Star down. That was a mistake when he nudged the beast and fired a quarter in which Beal lost 17 points on 6-of-8 and the wizards withdrew.
"It's his fault," Beal said on NBC Sports Washington's Wizards Postgame Live.
Trash talking is a part of the NBA and Beal understands that. What he also understands is that he won't avoid a challenge. If someone approaches him with confidence, he will make him pay for it, even if he's not entirely sure why some still believe that they can really turn him off.
"I don't know. I don't know, but let them keep doing it. Nothing's going to change no matter who's playing against us on the other side," said Beal. "He made me talk rubbish and I did talk to the best of them too. So it was cool with me. "
A note to the rest of the NBA, if you join Bradley Beal you may not enjoy what's next.
