Gators in the NBA

Sacramento signed swingman Corey Brewer for the remainder of the season. Brewer has scored 25 points in three games for the Kings during two 10-day contracts.

  • Florida’s all-time assist leader Chris Chiozza is on a 10-day contract with the Houston Rockets, but hasn’t seen action. In 36 games for the Capital City Go-Go of the G League, Chiozza averaged 13.1 points, 6.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals while shooting 41.5% from 3-point range.

Chiozza was recently selected to the 2019 USA World Cup Qualifying Team, but jumped to the Rockets.

  • Bradley Beal capped off the best month of his career with yet another 30-point night.

Now the All-Star guard is looking to carry his hot shooting into March with the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference up for grabs.

Beal scored 31 points, Trevor Ariza had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards beat the Brooklyn Nets 125-116 on Wednesday night.

Beal finished February averaging a career-high 30.9 points while shooting 52.2 percent from the field.

“It’s a huge accomplishment. I just want to win, whatever it looks like,” said Beal, who scored 17 points in the first half.

“Sometimes it’s going to involve me scoring 30-plus and some nights I won’t have to. So whatever it looks like, I want to go out there and get it done. Super confident right now in my game. Just trying to make the playoffs.”

The victory moved Washington within three games of eighth-place Charlotte.

  1. Brad Beal…I wonder what would have happened if his back court mates didn’t take consistently bad shots at the worst times….Elite 8 games. 2011 in particular was set up for us to win the title and we had Butler but started jacking 3s when we were DOMINATING inside. 2012 was the loss to Louisville..similar fashion down the stretch with Beal blossoming but not getting enough touches. Beal was such a smooth offensive player and knew he would excel at the next level.
