Beal, Bertans lift Wizards past Thunder for 5th straight win

WASHINGTON (AP) Bradley Beal scored 30 points, Davis Bertans made six 3-pointers in his return from paternity leave, and the Washington Wizards beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-107 on Monday night.

Bertans, who missed the previous two games while his wife gave birth to a son, finished with 21 points while making half of his dozen 3-point attempts. The Wizards have won five straight, matching a season high, and seven of eight to claw back into playoff contention in the Eastern Conference.

"It's a great feeling of knowing we're figuring it out, guys are growing and guys are starting to really play top-level basketball," Beal said. "It definitely sucks that it kind of happens sort of at the end of the year."
