 Bradley Beal sank his free throw in the final seconds to reach a milestone, a Washington record-tying 60 points.

Dominant again, Joel Embiid had already made it a moot point.

Embiid scored 38 points, and the NBA-leading Philadelphia 76ers overcame Beal’s first career 60-point game in a 141-136 win over the Wizards on Wednesday night.

“They pay me to take over the game, and they pay me to dominate,” Embiid said.

Beal scored 57 points through three quarters and seemed poised to not only smash the 60-point mark, but complete Washington’s rally from 21 points down.
