The teams new coach likes what he sees out of his shooting guard.In the last two games, Beal has scored 76 points -- and 30 or more in consecutive games for the first time in his five-year career.Beal had a career-high 42 points and John Wall shook off an awful shooting night with seven key points down the stretch as the Wizards beat the Phoenix Suns 106-101 on Monday night.Beal, who scored 34 points in Saturdays loss to Miami, had nine in the first quarter, seven in the second, 12 in the third and 14 in the fourth. He shot 14 for 22 and hit five of his 10 3-point attempts.He can be one of the best two-way players in the league, and my job is to continue to push him to strive for greatness, Brooks said.It takes a lot of energy. It takes a lot of inner drive and determination, but I think he has the ability to be that player.Beal said hes simplified his approach.Not thinking, not worrying about if I miss or if I make it. I just have the same mentality that its on to the next shot. That shots over, Beal said.Devin Booker had 30 points and Eric Bledsoe scored 29 for Phoenix (4-11), which has lost five of six. Booker and Bledsoe scored 18 of the teams 21 points in the fourth quarter.The Wizards improved to 4-10.

I couldnt have done more, Cavendish said. I made every day count. On another day I might be closer to gold, but I have to be happy.Especially the way things have gone in previous trips to the Olympics.Cavendish and teammate Bradley Wiggins were the reigning Madison world champions when they headed to the Beijing Games in 2008. But in the event, no longer part of the Olympic program, the duo could do no better than ninth, leaving Cavendish the only British track cyclist without a medal.Four years ago, he headed to the London Games backed by a powerhouse road team to tackle a course that suited him perfectly -- he even won a test event on it. But on race day, the British squad missed the key breakaway and Cavendish wound up 29th, reduced to being a footnote in the race report.So in that context, silver isnt such a bad result.Its always disappointing not to win, Cavendish said, but I did all I could. And the guys behind me did all they could. So yeah, Im happy.His performance was impressive by any measure: Not only did Cavendish nearly overcome Viviani in the last event of the six-event omnium, he also held off reigning Olympic champion Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark, who had to settle for the bronze medal.But perhaps making it more impressive was the fact that Cavendish squeezed in training for the omnium while continuing his successful road career. When other riders would take a break from the grind of professional cycling, he would hop on a jet to compete in a track cycling World Cup event, then hop right back on a plane to rejoin his Dimension Data at the next big race.Cavendishs performance never faltered on tthe road, either.ddddddddddddIn fact, the sprinting specialist earned the yellow jersey in the Tour de France after winning the opening stage, then won three more stages to stamp his mark on the sports biggest race.But Cavendish said all along that one of his priorities this season was that elusive Olympic medal, so he found himself abandoning the Tour in the final week to transition to the track.The past few weeks, he had been fiercely focused on succeeding inside the velodrome.I think gold would have been a fairytale but I dont think you can be unhappy with his ride, British Cycling coach Iain Dyer said. Its not easy gig by any stretch of the imagination but I think hes done himself proud here and I hope in the hours and days he will appreciate it.His effort in the six-race omnium was hardly without flaws.The biggest may have come in the elimination race, one of his better events, where he appeared to let up before the line and was knocked out by the Brazilian rider. Cavendish knew immediately how costly those lost points would be, slamming his palm on his handlebars during his cool-down lap.More trouble occurred in the points race Monday night, when Cavendish failed to see a South Korean rider next to him. Cavendish swerved down the banking of the track and collided with him, sending not only the Korean rider to the ground but also causing a pileup that caused Viviani to crash.Cavendish accepted the blame for the crash, but it ultimately didnt affect his standing.The bigger problem for Cavendish in the points race, where points are earned for intermediate sprints and bonus points are given for lapping the field, was that Viviani was marking him the entire time.Cavendish could never make a move to overcome his Italian rival.Still, he walked away from the Rio Games with the medal he so long desired, the glaring hole in his otherwise imperious resume finally filled -- even if it was filled with silver rather than gold.
