"Danny Avdia does a really good job in defense" | Israel today


The Israeli once again received praise for his defensive performance, this time from the reporters of the Chicago Bulls: "He is always excellent against DeMar DeRozan" • Kyle Kuzma is expected to receive an upgraded contract • Also: the project of coach Wes Anseld

Danny Avdia this morning (Thursday) received many compliments in the American media for his defensive ability in the Washington Wizards' loss to the Chicago Bulls.

The Israeli forward, not for the first time in his career, guarded Chicago Bulls' star DeMar DeRozan for many minutes of the game, who scored 27 points but only hit 11 of the 21 shots he took.

"Danny Avadia always seems to do a really good job of defending DeMar DeRozan. Tonight was no different," Chicago Bulls reporter Rob Shafer wrote on NBC.

Cody Westerlund, who covers the opposing team, also complimented Danny: "Abadiah defended DeRozan so well that he had no choice but to throw a hopeless ball into the basket."

Deni Avdija always seems to do a really good job defending DeMar DeRozan individually.

No different tonight.

Also on the offensive side, Avdia looked good yesterday compared to his two previous games, in which he scored at very low percentages.

He finished with 10 points (4-8 from the field, 2-3 from the free throw) and also added 6 assists, 5 rebounds and recorded a career high of 4 steals.

Even before the game, Chase Hughes, the team's reporter on NBC, announced that in recent weeks, the team's coach, Wes Anseld Jr., has taken a project to get closer to the Israeli player, wanting to make him a more significant part of the team: "We want to instill confidence in him. He A big part of what we are building here," said the coach.
