WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the Utah Jazz’s 116-95 win over the Washington Wizards, Jazz forward Joe Ingles send Wizards guard Bradley Beal flying with a massive jab step and then made matters worse for Beal by hitting a 3-pointer in his face.

A couple minutes into the third quarter, Ingles took a pass at his favorite spot, the corner, with Beal close by playing defense. Ingles took one dribble, stepped back and ripped an open 3-pointer. Beal never had a chance at defending the play as the step back left him completely out of position.

It was the lowlight of a rough night for Beal, who was also stymied on offense, scoring just 15 points after scoring 40 in both of the previous two games for Washington.

By comparison, Ingles was terrific in the Jazz win. The Australian-born forward scored 16 points with four 3-pointers made.

The Jazz win came as result of strong shooting and team play, as Utah picked up 35 assists in the victory.

Utah will continue its four-game road trip on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. against the New York Knicks.
