Although he did not score in Washington's win over Utah and after falling into the offense problem again, the Wizards coach came out in defense of the Israeli rookie: "This is another learning experience for him"
Abdia following Bridges, tonight
On the one hand she gets a lot of criticism that she can get out of herself a lot more.
On the other hand, she manages to beat the team with the best balance in the league - Utah - twice that season.
This is the life story of the Washington Wizards this year.
The group from the capital managed to beat the jazz outside 121: 125 tonight and proved once again that there are moments this year that they can provide basketball at the highest levels.
The Wizards' win put them just two games away from tenth place leading up to the playoffs and tonight's win gives great optimism to their coach, Scott Brooks and his team.
Utah's loss cut for her a streak of 24 consecutive home games without a loss.
The one who once again excelled in the game despite suffering from injuries recently is Bradley Bill.
The All-Star was very happy at the end and said: "Everything feels better now. The body felt good, and once that was the case, there was no problem that I would play more than I thought I would play."
By the way, Russell Westbrook once again provided an incredible triple double with 25 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists.
Goodnight from Utah.

The one who will least want to remember this game is Abdia who again got into an early offense problem with three fouls in the first five minutes and finished the game with just 10 minutes when he did not score and finished with 0 points.
"He's been excellent lately on offense, but there are nights like that," his coach Scott Brooks tried to reassure.
"Not only for the Rockies but also for veteran players. Obviously I did not mean for him to play just 10 minutes. I keep saying I like his approach. He faced experienced players and committed offenses, it's another learning experience for him," he added.
