Bradley Beal achieved monumental accomplishment vs. Magic

Not only did Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal all score 20 or more points last night against the Orlando Magic, but Beal particularly achieved a substantial feat in his 12-year career in the NBA.

Before stepping on the court inside Footprint Center, Beal was sitting on 2998 total assists.

In the beginning moments of the game, Beal handed Booker the ball before Booker scored a three-pointer.

With only being one away from 3000 now, it took almost a full quarter for Beal to achieve the milestone.

Eventually, he would pass to Chimezie Metu who converted a layup at 9:25 in the second quarter and yet, it seemed like it was just a normal sequence for him during the game.

However, Metu’s bucket led to Beal eclipsing the 3000 assist mark, becoming the 229th player in NBA history to do so.

To celebrate both New Years Eve and his major accomplishment, the Suns, along with Beal, had a toast involving some wine together postgame.

Right back at it again, Beal and Phoenix will play for the second night in a row, facing the Portland Trailblazers at 7 p.m. tonight.
