With one player suspended from their roster for Game 4 on Sunday, the Washington wizards had a key performance from Bradley Beal to help even their series with Boston. At the Verizon Center the home team was able to make this a 2-2 series as the two teams will head back to the Celtics' home gym for the next installment. Here's a look at how Beal, John Wall, Marcin Gortat, and the rest of the Washington Wizards won by 21 points in their fourth game of the best-of-seven NBA Playoffs series.

How the Wizards took Game 4

In their latest effort, the Washington Wizards shot 44-for-84 from the floor or 52.4 percent.

Once again, it was Bradley Beal and John Wall putting in work as the duo combined for 56 points today. Beal had 29 of those on 11-for-16 shooting, while Wall had 27 points on an 8-for-25 day. Wall also had a game-high 12 assists and five steals in the win. Among his sweet dishes was a sweet pass to Gortat right underneath the basket, with the big man finishing with a nice reverse layup.

Markieff Morris took over as the double-double guy from Marcin Gortat for today's game, getting 16 points and 10 boards. Grotto finished with just six points and seven rebounds, while Otto Porter Jr. added 18 points and snatched eight boards. The Wizards took control of the boards 45-31 to help propel today's big win.

The team was without forward Kelly Oubre Jr. who was suspended for the game due to his flagrant foul and ejection in the previous meeting.

On the losing side, it was a relatively quiet day for the Celtics. All-Star Isaiah Thomas shot just 7-of-14 from the floor, but that included a 5-for-6 rate from downtown.

He finished with a team-high 19 points, while the only other starter in double-digits was Al Horford. Terry Rozier and Kelly Olynyk came off the bench for a combined 30 points, but that was about it for the Celtics in today's loss. As a team, they shot 44.3 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from three-point range but it wasn't enough to stop the dynamic duo of Beal and Wall.

When's the next meeting?

The Boston Celtics will host Game 5 against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday evening. Game time is currently scheduled for 8 p.m. Eastern Time at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Live television coverage of this matchup will be shown via the TNT network.
