Danny Avdia also knows exactly what he did differently tonight: "I was just aggressive, I used my size to create an advantage over the defenders", he said in an interview he gave on the floor to the broadcasting team after the game (one reserved only for players who excelled), and how easy, simple and elegant it is See suddenly.
The Israeli accurately described the only thing he did differently in the game against San Antonio.
Beyond the 25 points he scored against the Spurs, what really needs to be optimistic is Danny's body language.
We've seen this change three games in a row, and tonight, Avdia reached a boiling point and delivered his best game in the NBA.
His dominance and confidence on the floor revealed the player we have all been waiting to see for a long time, and he provided moves that reminded us of things we saw from him in the reserve team and the senior team last summer.
Avdia looks happy, relaxed, and above all like someone who is sure of his place in the team: "The friends started calling me 'Turbo', that's my new nickname, I love it and I'm happy that I celebrated like that", he said about the new name that was stuck to him.
Everyone is talking about the trade that sent Roy Hachimura to the Los Angeles Lakers as the turning point, and rightly so.
But the only significant change that has occurred in Avdia since then is only in my mind.
After all, he has already played 30 minutes in the Wizards' uniform more than once this season, and also took more than 12 shots in the game, but to rush towards the ring in an impressive manner like he did at the beginning of the fourth quarter, we have never seen that from him.
Something was released in the forward's head, as if some anguish had come off him and he just started playing the way he knows how.

Into his third season in Washington, Avdia entered with great expectations from the team and things looked very bad at the beginning.
The shots didn't go in, the team lost without a break and the forward's body language also boded badly.
Last November was his worst in the NBA.
A little more than two months have passed, and his confidence on the floor in the last few games leaves no room for doubt, very soon we will see him breaking a career record again, on the way to another interview on the floor at the end of the game.
