Waaarriors! Can you dig it!?  Harrison Barnes was diggin’ something last night. He’s struggled in the early going of his NBA career (averaging under 10 points through his first nine games), but with 18 points and 9 rebounds in 35 minutes last night its looking like he might be starting to put it all together.

Bradley Beal is learning how tough it is to be a Wizard. Now he understands why Harry was always so stressed out. Expelliarmus! Last night Beal scored 22 points night adding 4 rebounds and dishing out 2 assists. The rookie had his best game of the young season and clearly wasn’t even at his best (0-4 on 3 point attempts, but he did go 8-8 from the free throw line).
