In Washington they pointed to the Israeli rookie's part in the weak half, the coach made it clear: "He was not good. And when he is not good, he will play less."

"Like a pro": Danny Abdia and the sign that fell on his head in the middle of a trip (@washwizardsil)

Washington continues to look like a deadly team on the offensive side and terrible on the defensive side.

The Wizards suffered a loss tonight (Wednesday to Thursday) Friday of the season, 141: 136 to Philadelphia, on the evening that Bradley Bill broke records in it but again came out frustrated.

The shooting guard, who opened the season with impressive attacking ability, set a career-high 60 points (20 of 35 from the field, 7 of 10 from three, 13 of 15 from the penalty spot), equaled the Wizards' points record (Gilbert Arenas also reached 60 in 2004), but admitted at the end that he was "nervous."



"I mostly feel a lot of anger. I don't care about those records. All of my career highs ended in losses, so I don't count them at all," Bill said, "for me that record can be thrown out the window, just like my two previous career highs."



Although Shavil understands that "sometimes the team needs me to score 40, 50 or even 60 points", but says that "he just wants to win".

The problem is that the Wizards' basketball is far from a winning basketball, especially not on the defensive side.

Tonight it was reflected with an absorption of 82 points in the first half.



"They were 60 percent accurate on the field and 62 percent on the three. You can't win games like this," Bill understands. "Who cares about records when we keep like this? We have to get better in this area and understand that all the teams in the league are very hungry. For the previous two games, and we paid for it very quickly. "

Washington lost to Philadelphia despite Bill's 60 points, a weak game for Abdia

Russell Westbrook also understands that with such a defense, the Wizards cannot fight for a playoff spot in the East.

"The way we saved in the second quarter, it's bullshit ... it just must not happen, it's not acceptable to us," said the coordinator, who tried to inspire the Wizards with a motivational call in the half.

Westbrook sprained his finger towards the end and said "that shit hurts, but I'll be fine."



Either way, Danny Abdia, who finished another lukewarm offensive game with just one point and just one shot from the field, did not find himself on the defensive side this time either, where he has so far been one of Washington's bright spots.

Tonight the challenge for Washington and Abdia was greater, against one of the hottest teams in the league, an attacking team with a distinct goal player in the form of Joel Ambide, and a lot of good three-pointers surrounding him.

In the first minutes of the game Washington tried to send a double save to Ambide, and Abdia was repeatedly sent to help Thomas Bryant in color.

The result was a series of free throws by Seth Kerry and Danny Green that helped the Sixers escape and gain momentum.



NBC wrote that "defending Ambide has taken prices away from the Wizards. There were a few instances in the first half that Danny Abdia came on a double save to help Thomas Bryant, leaving their scenes free and helping them keep warm."



Abdia again went down to just 16 minutes and once again saw the entire final quarter off the bench, a third game in a row.

"Everyone has to be ready," Washington coach Scott Brooks said at the end when asked about the lack of minutes for the Israeli rookie.

"Danny is a good player, he did not play well tonight but Roy Hachimura was not at his best either. I will not give them up, but on a day like this they will not get their normal minutes. We have Danny and Davis Bartans who share the minutes in position 3, and they are two "Good players who can play a bit in position 4. Everyone needs to be ready."

Will the minutes go down?

Brooks complimented Philadelphia, saying "I think this is the best team in the NBA right now. It has amazing talent on the roster. We tried everything against Ambide, including double saves, but it didn't really work because it's a problem piece."



"It's hard to keep them this year. Everyone knows what Joel is capable of doing, but this year they surrounded him with excellent threes shots that should not be left alone even for a moment," Bradley Bill added.

"Danny Green, Seth Kerry ... these are players who feel very comfortable next to a dominant player like Ambide. They have a very good team."
