Danny Abdia's debut season in the NBA was characterized by a corona plague that clouded the entire team and then he suffered an injury that slowed him down.

But the Israeli forward opened his second season in a great way and tonight (Friday-Saturday) he recorded a season-high 16 points in a 116: 101 home game against Cleveland.

It is true that most of Abdia's points were when the game was over, but he got a lot on stage and used it to prove his offensive and defensive potential.



Abdia, who twice blocked Owen Mobley in the second quarter, "became Washington's best defensive player," according to NBC.

Abdia is second only to Daniel Gaford with 0.8 blocks per game when he already has 18 blocks in 20 games this season, more than he had in 54 games last year (15).

Abdia referred to this data and said: "Wow, it fills me with pride. I get on the pitch and try to keep the best players, try to help the team defend the ring and it works."

"He's very active with his hands and has a great timing on defense just before the player releases the shot," praised Abdia Wes Ansald Jr.'s players in front of him trying to walk around him and dodge him, but he's smart enough to figure it out.

Kyle Kozma also praised Abdia's defensive game, which this time also led Washington on points: "He's a great defensive game. Maybe the average fan and someone who doesn't understand basketball won't understand what he's doing. He just knows how to move his legs and stay in front of his player. He uses "Great in his hands around the ring and only getting better."



Abdia analyzed the differences between NBA basketball and Euroleague basketball and said, "Athletics is less important in the Euroleague. There are a lot more athletic guys here. In my opinion, the Euroleague throws more from the outside rather than the color."
