The Wizards battled with the defending NBA champions Friday night at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto and despite being undermanned without Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant, the supporting cast came through.
Here are the top takeaways from the game:
Ish Smith was hitting on all cylinders Friday. The veteran point guard finished with 26 points while remaining perfect from the field. Smith went 9-of-9 from the field, 4-of-4 from downtown, and 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe.
Until tonight No Wizards sub has been perfect from the floor with at least 9 FGA since stats were first recorded in the 1970-71 season. @IshSmith is the first. Per @EliasSports #WizRaptors #WizRaptors

Bradley Beal gave the Wizards life down the stretch with a clutch three late to keep the game in reach.
