Beal Practices for Three-Point ContestPosted on February 08, 2014 by Jeremy Hyman
The Wizards were back on the practice floor on Saturday after last night's frustrating loss to the Cavs. They'll host the Kings to finish off their five-game home-stand on Sunday night at 6pm at Verizon Center.
After every practice, Bradley Beal always gets extra shots up. But today, after his normal "extra shots routine", he brought the racks out and with the help of a few assistant coaches and some of the staff, worked on his three-point contest routine.
While the cameras were not rolling the entire time, I can attest that Beal looked pretty comfortable moving from station to station and shooting quickly off all the racks.
He began in the far corner and by my estimate made about 12 in a row right from the start. If only Instagram would allow videos to be longer to show them all....
He would then shoot one shot from each spot behind a cone, and move to the next station to shoot six balls, just as he will next Saturday.
The music played in the background to try and simulate what it will be like next Saturday when he competes on the grand stage at #StateFarmSaturday night.
From the Wizards' press release:
The NBA's best from behind the arc will take part in the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, with the eight players competing in a two-round competition. Each player will have one minute to shoot as many balls as he can. The highest scoring East and highest scoring West competitors from the First Round will advance to the Championship Round. Of the two finalists, the one with the lower individual score from the First Round will go first in the Championship Round. The player scoring the most points in the Championship Round will win the 2014 Foot Locker Three-Point Contest for his conference along with $100,000 for their Conference's charities.
Beal will also take part in the #BBVARisingStars Challenge next Friday night.
Monumental Network will be on the scene with full coverage.Posted in: Sports
