Washington Wizards (31-36, 10th in the Eastern Conference) vs. Indiana Pacers (31-35, ninth in the Eastern Conference) Indianapolis; Saturday, 7 p.m. EDT BOTTOM LINE: Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards take on the Indiana Pacers. Beal ranks second in the league scoring 31.1 points per game.
I just wanted to bounce back,” LeVert said, referring to the Pacers scoring only 93 points against the NBA's worst defense in an 11-point home loss to Sacramento on Wednesday. That's what this league is all about. I wanted to be at my best.
Caris LeVert spent the first few years of his NBA career playing for a young Brooklyn Nets team, and he saw first-hand as they improved. In 2019 they ended up making the NBA Playoffs, and the following season signed Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant (Durant missed all of the 2020 NBA season). He played with Irving for that one season, and then the following season got a chance to play with Irving and Durant before being involved in the blockbuster trade that sent James Harden to the Nets.
