After a bad season and a series of losses, Washington and Danny Avdia are starting to settle down and tonight (between Wednesday and Thursday) the Wizards recorded a second home win in a row, an impressive 102:127 over Phoenix.
A day after the difficult victory against the strong Philadelphia, this time Washington made it easier and flew to a 21:36 lead in the first quarter and took the lead until the end, while also in the last quarter it explodes with 18:34 to achieve its 15th victory of the season compared to 21 losses .

Avdia again came off the bench like against Philadelphia and contributed in 27 minutes 8 points (3 of 5 from the field, 1 of 3 from three), 6 rebounds, 2 assists and also 3 turnovers.
But with all due respect to Abadia, the star of this game was Roy Hachimura.
The forward who was involved in reports of a possible trade with Phoenix, recorded a career high of 30 points with excellent percentages (11 of 13).

Washington mainly took advantage of the thinness of Phoenix's roster, which besides Devin Booker also lacks Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne and Landry Shamet.
DeAndre Ayton led the Suns with 31 points, Chris Paul added 20 but it was far from enough in a game where they conceded 127 points.
Washington, which is on its fourth win in five games, will look to keep the momentum going Friday night when it hosts Orlando in Florida.
