Just before the shortened All-Star break, Danny Abdia experiences one of the most exciting evenings of his challenging rookie season.

Tonight (Thursday-Friday), Washington held an evening honoring Jewish heritage as part of the home game against the Clippers, and prepared a host of surprises for Avdia.



Among other things, the American national anthem was invited to the singer Kobi Aflalo's song and during the game special videos were shown of Israel's ambassador to the UN Gilad Ardan and of Abdia's friends from Maccabi Tel Aviv, Omri Caspi and Yuval Sussman.



"Hi Danny, "I remember it well from my years in the NBA," Caspi said in a video shown in the Wizards' home hall, part of the NBC network. "We are proud of you and wish you success later in the season, from the Maccabi Tel Aviv family," added Sussman.



Abdia's close friend. One of Israel's young teams, Yam Madar, appeared on screen. "Hi Danny, keep doing what you are doing, we are so proud of you.

I love you bro, stay strong, "he said.



Abdia appeared on screen himself and said:" I want to thank the owners of the Wizards and the team that organized an evening honoring the Jewish community.

I want to thank you for the support I receive from the Jewish community in Israel and around the world. "

On the floor, Abdia was a partner in a prestigious 117: 119 victory over the ambitious rival from Los Angeles, playing 25 minutes and finishing with 4 points, 7 rebounds, a steal and a block.

Abdia may not have been involved in the Wizards' offense again, but showed defensive sparks against Kwai Leonard in the second half.



The Clippers star who finished with 22 points suffered an offense problem that limited him, and although he started the game with 5 of 5 from the field, he finished it with just 7 of 14, after Abdia and Roy Hachimura were entrusted with him for most of the minutes in the second half.

Abdia even squeezed a fourth offense from Leonard at an important moment, and also scored nice points in the final quarter, with a cost-to-cost move that showed a pinch of his abilities as a playmaker.



"Danny Abdia has repeatedly shown this season the ability to lead a ball. It is so impressive to see a 20-year-old player at that height hold the ball like that," they wrote in Washington.

Veteran journalist David Aldridge wrote in "Athletic" that "Danny Abdia knows how to play, he just needs to learn to play in this league without committing offenses every six seconds. It will happen again."

Brooks praises.

"I think it's great. It's a shame there is no game, but the fact that they were both selected is just great," Brooks said, referring to Abdia and Hachimura.

"It says a lot about our general manager and his team. We selected two very good players in the draft who are going to be top five players and stars in this league. Both are young and both will continue to improve and get stuck in the NBA for many years to come."



Abdia who was one of eight Rockies selected for the game (out of 20 players in total), concludes his first half of the season in the NBA with averages of 6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game on 42.6% from the field.



"Danny was a teenager until a month ago. To be selected at this stage for the youngsters' All-Star Game is impressive. We are very proud of him," Brooks added.

A winning move.

But with all due respect to Abdia and the eve of the Jewish heritage that accompanied the game, the victory was recorded primarily to the credit of stars Bradley Bill and Russell Westbrook.

Bale finished a typical game with 33 points and 7 rebounds, while Westbrook recorded 27 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds.

Westbrook nearly caused the Wizards to drop the win with a number of penalty kicks in critical minutes, finishing the game with just 7 of 15 from the penalty spot and continuing his steep decline in that area, averaging just 60% of the penalty this season - the lowest in his career.



"I still trust him. He's working on it, and the shooting will come back to him," Brooks said of Westbrook and the new penalty issue.

"Besides, he does so many other things for us, that this problem is dwarfed."



Brooks refers, among other things, to Westbrook's developed sense of rebounds, which tonight assured the Wizards of victory.

7 seconds to go, Roy Hachimura missed from the penalty spot and the explosive midfielder emerged out of nowhere, took an offensive rebound and prevented the Clippers from a chance for a last attack where they could equalize or win.



"Russ has the ability to make moves out of nowhere," Brooks praised him.

"Very few players in the league are able to make such moves."



Bradley Bill also admitted he was "overwhelmed" by Westbrook's crucial rebound.

"At first I didn't notice he was in the area at all, but suddenly I saw a red tank top flying out of nowhere, and I immediately knew it was Russ," Bill said.

"It could not have been anyone else. No one else in the league does things like that. It was a tremendous move, a smart move that won the game."
