Danny Abdia's second season in the NBA kicked off tonight (Wednesday to Thursday) on the right foot, with Washington defeating Toronto 83-98 away, and receiving a contribution of 8 points and 7 rebounds from the Israeli. Abdia played 21 minutes and showed good ability, especially on the defensive side, when in the attack he finishes with 100 percent from the field (3 of 3) and gets minutes in a variety of compositions - both in a quintet that consists mostly of quintet players, and with a quintet made of bench players.



New coach Wes Ansald Jr. favorably noted the team defense, which stopped Toronto on just 30 percent from the field and was signed to the game the Wizards absorb the fewest points since 2017. Abdia had a part in the good defense, keeping well in one-on-one situations and unlike last season , Also avoids rapid accumulation of offenses.



On offense he initiated several moves, and after a certain move in which he penetrated the basket and handed a three-pointer to Kyle Kozma, NBC reporter Chase Hughes noted: "This is exactly the way Wes Ansald Jr. expects Danny to play. He plans to expand his role as a playmaker, Quickly color and create situations. "

Even before the game, NBC general manager Tommy Shepherd was interviewed on the NBC network, and talked about the change that is planned for Avdia this season.



"He can be a secondary playmaker, he's an excellent rebounder, a solid guard, he can score and doesn't have to stand in corners," said Shepherd, doubting a sting to former coach Scott Brooks.



According to Shepherd, Abdia's adjustment difficulties during the rookie season have not been easy, but now he feels much more comfortable. "Pretty shit to be a rookie. The injury was disappointing too, there were some more difficulties at the beginning of the summer and now we are very careful with him. We are very confident in what he can give us, and understand that the disgusting stage is behind him."



Shepherd spoke with a smile about Abdia's curiosity and his tendency to ask many questions.

"I appreciate the amount of questions he is able to ask. It's a talent. Laughter aside, it's a great thing. He's always listening, he wants to be a great player, he came from one of the most decorated teams in world basketball. I do not think we understand how hard it is for an international player to reach "NBA and integrate quickly. He came to a new world, and it's hard."

Not an easy time.

Shepherd recounted his recent conversations with Abdia, and the advice he gave him.

"I called him for a call recently and I said to him, 'You know Danny, everything that happened to you last season, no one cares. You have to move on and be prepared for the next challenges. Put everything that happened aside.' He took that advice and worked hard. "It's very summery, and I really appreciate it."
