Bradley Beal still has support of John Wall, Wizards after sluggish start

After Bradley Beal missed his fourth 3-pointer, the Washington Wizards All-Star shooting guard passed on attempting another 3 and took it strong to the rim, only to watch Serge Ibaka swoop in and emphatically reject his shot.

This pretty much summed up Beal’s frustrating night, during which he spent most of it in foul trouble before being limited to nine points and 3-for-11 shooting in a 130-119 Game 2 loss to the Raptors.

After averaging a career-high 36.3 minutes this season and playing 82 games for the first time in his six-year career, the 39.3 percent career 3-point shooter could be feeling the effects of trying to keep Washington afloat while Wall was out for two months due to knee surgery. Beal averaged 22.6 points and career highs of 4.5 assists and 4.4 rebounds this season.

Peat ended last year on injured reserve after suffering a broken ankle in the wild card round of the playoffs.

Starting in the first round, the Lions should have the choice of multiple defensive tackles at pick No. 20. Vita Vea, a Ngata clone, is the most likely to be off the board at that point, but Detroit could be looking at a choice of Maurice Hurst, Da’Ron Payne and Tavon Bryan.

Hurst, the former Michigan standout, is an undersized 3-technique, but fits any scheme with his ability to get after the passer. Bryan offers more size with elite athleticism. He might have the highest ceiling of the three if you trust your coaching staff to maximize potential. Payne, meanwhile, would provide a long-term replacement for Williams. The Alabama prospect is a brick house who should be a quality run stopper out of the box, with more pass-rush potential.

On Day 2, former wrestler Harrison Phillips, who racked up a staggering 103 tackles as a senior last season, or deceptively athletic 315-pound B.J. Hill, both make sense. Nathan Shepherd, out of little known Fort Hays State, also carries intrigue starting in Round 3.

Aaron Judge gets his own special section at Yankee Stadium

One of the silliest things about the MLB Draft is people comparing prospects to former stars. I get the motivation: The average fan knows little about these players, and comps are an easy way to get an idea of what type of player the prospect is on the field. But Adell has been compared to everyone from Bo Jackson to Byron Buxton to Melvin Upton Jr., and that’s more than a bit crazy. What you need to know is this: Adell is a ridiculously talented prep star with a big upside who could wind up pretty much anywhere in the first round.

Remember that HR-to-K ratio Haseley’s teammate, Pavin Smith, has put up this year? Haseley isn’t far behind, with 14 homers and 19 strikeouts heading into the ACC Tournament. Must be something about those Virginia hitters, eh? Oh, and Haseley’s batting .400 with a 1.186 OPS and 10 stolen bases, to boot.

The Yankees on Monday unveiled an 18-seat section in the right field stands of their ballpark to promote rising star Aaron Judge, their right fielder.

Tickets to the section are not for sale. Instead, the team will choose 18 fans each game to sit there, and they’ll receive a judge’s wig and a gavel that says All Rise or Let’s Go Yankees, according to Ruocco.

Ruocco reported the Yankees conceived the idea for the special section during spring training, and as they saw more and more fandom about this right fielder, they decided to finally implement that.

Ahead of Monday’s action, Judge led MLB with 15 home runs and had 30 RBI with a .321/.421/.707 slash line.
