And without John Wall, who fractured his left hand and wrist and has missed the last two games and is unlikely to play again this series. "Don't let my face fool you now. It was tough," said Beal of chasing around Korver after Game 2. "I was trying to do whatever I could. It wasn't easy. A lot of treatment the last couple days but I was out there, no excuses."
