Having four games in five days, even for a second-year player such as Bradley Beal, can be a bit much.

Beal hasn't been himself in the last two games, combining to shoot 14-for-40 from the field, including 3-for-16 from three-point range.

"Sometimes, I can feel my legs aren't in it. A few minor adjustments here in there all because of fatigue," said Beal, who has played 40 or more minutes in four of the last five games. "Sometimes it just doesn't go in. ... Nine times out of 10 I feel like all my shots are going in."

The Wizards (5-8) needed Beal to pull away from the New York Knicks on Saturday, but after making three of his first five shots in the fourth quarter he simmered down by missing his next two. Still, Beal scored a team-high seven points in that period, including his only three-pointer, to secure the 98-89 victory.

Beal had six points in the third quarter as the Wizards flipped a 52-49 halftime deficit into a 76-69 advantage.
