Danny Abdia after Washington's loss to Toronto (from the Wizards' Twitter account)

The morning after the Wizards' victory, the media in Washington expressed satisfaction with the team's ability.

Tonight (Wednesday through Thursday) Washington's four-game losing streak came to an end with a 116: 131 win over Orlando, and Danny Abdia was a full partner in that: The young Israeli scored 16 points - the most in his NBA career since the 20 points he scored against Miami about three months ago .



Journalist Ben Mahitch's "Locked On Wizards" podcast referred to Abdia's ability, who tonight had 30 minutes, once again found his hand off the arc with four successful threes (the most since that game against Miami) in seven attempts and also added 5 rebounds, 2 assists and -0 losses.

On the Road also provided the best plus-minus index in the group (+19).



"He desperately needed it," Mahich said of the Israeli rookie. "Bill said Westbrook yells at Abdia if he doesn't throw, and today it looks good. It looks good when he throws. For Abdia - it's a player with abilities, not by chance. Aimed at the top 5 in the draft.He runs a great game relative to his height, scores well, his instincts are good, he showed he can contribute in game management and run with the ball, then the Wizards started putting him in the corner. And now he shows he also knows how to score. He scored 4 Threes, more importantly - he took 10 shots.

"What's Washington's goal? It's not going to take a championship. So the goal is to make sure players with potential like Danny Abdia and Roy Hachimura continue to develop, and adapt to the high levels. Danny is very young, not yet finished his first season in the league, but 16 points? And he looks good. And when he plays with confidence he is an asset to this team. The goal of the season is to develop these players. The Wizards must give him confidence. He must go to him. Give him the ball. Get the best out of him, because he is full of talent. "An athlete who will make spectacular moves - but he is making important moves, running a game, scoring well, so you have to give him the ball and let it shine."

Quinton Mayo on the quinton mayo show, another podcast that analyzes the Wizards, also referred to the loss and called it a "unicorn" - a nickname for high-achieving singles players who are able to dribble, score threes and guard, which have become the most sought-after commodity in the NBA today.



"There's a tendency to draft players, brag about their abilities and then not let them express their abilities," said Mayo. "The Wizards believed in Danny, he was high on their lists, and if you look at Abdia's tapes and highlights, he's not a player standing over the arc and scoring threes. I saw full Maccabi Tel Aviv games. Believe me. His ability is to manage the game, his speed, his versatility in relation to his height. These are his qualities. Because of these things they said he was an option for the top 3 in the draft. Washington said he was a 'unicorn'. Danny. Managing game, guard, morale.



"And when he stands on the bow and waits?

So yeah, they beat Orlando.

He had a good game.

Obviously it's beautiful.

But there is so much untapped talent in this team, and that's what bothers me.

I know my listeners in Israel think so, because even in Israel, fans are tired of seeing Abdia being used in Washington.

People from Israel turn to me.

They'm tired of it.

They want to free Danny away.

He's a killer.

He kills in training.

I will soon have credible inside testimony about how Danny kills in training, and will tell what he does.



"As someone he didn't score, this season made him improve his jump shot, and tonight we saw that. He felt more and more comfortable as the game progressed."

Mahitch also talked about Washington's motives for continuing to win, or intentionally losing and improving positions in the draft. "Wins and losses are also important for Bradley Bill," he said. "It's important to show him that the team wins, on the other hand it's important to keep him healthy, given the fact that he plays with injury and pain ... John Wall has struggled with injuries throughout his career in Washington, and it changed "His game and hit him. The Wizards have nothing to play for right now, they are not candidates for the championship ... Bill is 27, he can get a big contract, it's a big risk for him and the club. The team should not risk its star if he is injured."



Abdia, who entered the home hall in Washington in black and with shoes with the caption "Remember" to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, said after the game: "Today my heart was with my Israeli and Jewish family all over the world - to remember the worst thing that happened to our culture. And the Holocaust is one of them. I did my best to show that we will not forget it. The word 'remember' I wrote is that we will never forget what happened to 6 million Jews. It is part of our culture. I am glad I had the opportunity to lock my shoes on NBA parquet With these letters and to represent the Jews all over the world. "
