Wizards' Bradley Beal Laughs Off Air-Balled Free Throw vs. Pacers

Bleacher Report
Jim CavanContributor IMay 6, 2014

With just over five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Bradley Beal stepped to the free throw line with his Washington Wizards leading the Indiana Pacers 92-78.

Up to that point, the Pacers simply had no answer for Washington's second-year shooting guard, who'd already tallied 23 points, seven assists and four steals.

The answer, apparently, is a 15-foot set shot with nobody guarding him.


A surprise miss from the 79 percent free-throw shooter, but one with the game well in hand.

No harm in laughing that one off.
