"Andretted": throughout the league they praised Danny Avdia, Kyle Kuzma stung | Israel today


The Israeli of Washington pulled down 20 rebounds in the victory over Chicago and won a lot of compliments around the NBA • The star of the Wizards joked: "I'm mad at him, because he finished with only 9 points, so it doesn't look good"

Danny Avdia recorded one of his best NBA games tonight (between Wednesday and Thursday), when he recorded an impressive statistical streak of 9 points along with 20 rebounds in the victory of the Washington Wizards over the Chicago Bulls.

The 20 rebounds Avdia picked up tonight made him the youngest player to do so in a Wizards uniform after Chris Webber who did it at the age of 21, when Avdia turned 22 last month.

Also, only 16 players managed to pull down 20 rebounds or more this season, when apart from Avdia and Luka Doncic, all the rest were big men - and play in positions 4 and 5.

Throughout the league and on social networks, the Israeli people celebrated the impressive statistic, when he receives mentions in almost all the leading NBA pages.

Among other things, it was written: "Danny Avdia is so underrated," as well as: "Where were you the night Avdia grabbed 20 rebounds against Chicago?"

The team's coach Wes Anseld Jr. complimented the Israeli and said about him: "It was purely a mental matter. It has nothing to do with a method of play, or a defensive style. 20 rebounds that everyone wants. We must make sure that in the next games we make more 'will' moves than the team in front of us." .

The star of the team, Kyle Kuzma, who also scored a game-winning basket in a favor to Abadia while adding bites and joking: "Most of the rebounds were easy, without any struggle, but I still give him credit," the forward said jokingly, "It's a piece of achievement, no doubt, But I'm really mad at him, because he finished with only 9 points, so it doesn't look good. But 20 rebounds is huge, and we needed every one of them tonight. In previous games, we had trouble getting rebounds with our low lineups."

Kyle Kuzma jokes on Deni Avdija's 20 rebound night that "most of them were uncontested, but I'll still give it to him."

"I'm really mad at him because he only had 9 points so it doesn't even look good."
