While Beal has dealt with his share of bumps and bruises over his four-year career, he hasn’t let it define who he is as a player. After starting the 2016-17 season slow, Beal has really picked it up in December, averaging 24 points per contest to go along with 4 assists. He currently sits at 22.7 ppg, raising his average from a season ago by 5 points. He and John Wall, when they’re able to see the court together, form one of the most potent offensive backcourt duos in the NBA. And although his team has only made the playoffs twice in his four years, Beal’s playoff numbers skyrocket from his regular season output—a testament to his ability to perform at the highest level when it matters most.
