WASHINGTON (AP) For the third time in four seasons, John Wall and Bradley Beal exited the playoffs in the second round, extending the Washington Wizards' nearly four-decade drought without a conference finals appearance.
"It feels a little different, but a little bit of the same. It's kind of like I'm tired of being in this situation. I'm tired of losing in the second round. I'm kind of at that point now," Beal said Tuesday, about 15 hours after Washington was eliminated with a Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics.
"I felt like we were right there," he added. "That's the worst thing, especially about the day after."
