Danny Abdia talks about adapting to the NBA (from the Washington Wizards' Twitter page)

An exciting night for Danny Abdia: Tonight (Saturday to Sunday), the Israeli rookie met for the first time in his career Luka Doncic, the player to whom he was often compared at the beginning of his career.

It ended in another defeat of Washington, 109: 87 at home, but in a game that Abdia could draw encouragement from to continue.



Abdia started again in the Wizards' five-man squad, and in the absence of the injured Bradley Bill and Roy Hachimura, won a 39-minute season record.

He finished them with 9 points (4 of 11 from the field including 0 of 4 from three, 1 from 1 from penalties) along with 8 rebounds, assists and three fouls.

In defense, Abdia was given one of the most demanding tasks an NBA player can get today, when he was entrusted with personally guarding Doncic.

The Wizards' team plan to stop the Slovenian prodigy was far from work, issuing a stat line of 26 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists, but in moves where Abdia himself kept him, he had a little more difficulty.



Bottom line, it was another disappointing game for the Wizards, who have suffered 11 losses in the last 14 games including three in a row, Jordan to a balance of 31 losses versus just 17 wins and remain six and a half games away from eighth place in the East leading the playoffs.

On the other hand, the Mavericks with a fourth consecutive victory were established in seventh place in the West.

Like Washington, the Mavericks have appeared on a lackluster roster, without Kristaps Forzingis, Maxi Caliber and other inside players.

That's probably what helped the Wizards stay relatively close in the first half, with Robin Lopez's dominant minutes under the baskets.

Abdia concentrated in the first minutes mainly on defense, and despite the many shortcomings in Washington's roster, touched the ball for the first time on offense only after more than five minutes.

At the same time, he recorded a positive first half overall with 7 points, and was a partner in the Wizards' good minutes in the second quarter that helped them go down to the break with a minimum lag of 5 points.



The escape of Dallas and Doncic came in the second half, in which Washington continued to have difficulty on offense, and this time also found no answers on defense.

Abdia missed his first four shots in the third quarter, Russell Westbrook tried to take the game on himself but often lost, and the Mavericks opened a double-digit gap.

Raul Neto and Davis Bartans returning from injury had signed for a comeback start, but another Mavericks press on the pedal in the final quarter ensured for them a relaxed win.

39 minutes.

Aside from Doncic, Jaylen Branson also excelled for the winner with 19 points from the bench, with Boban Marianovic finishing with a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds.

Washington was led by Russell Westbrook with 26 points (11 from 24 from the field) along with 14 rebounds and 5 assists.

Robin Lopez added 18, Raul Neto contributed 16, but the Wizards will look for the win another time, perhaps in the next game against Toronto at home on the night between Monday and Tuesday.
