Washington Wizards surrendered tonight (between Saturday and Sunday) 125:123 to Brooklyn despite missing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but despite the team's disappointment from the capital, one can be satisfied from the Israeli point of view after Danny Avdia provided a great game that included 23 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals and -3 assists.
The one who was impressed by the performance of the forward is Chase Hughes, an NBC reporter who covers Washington.
"Something has changed in Danny Avdia recently, and I'm not just talking about the 'Turbo' nickname. Ever since the Wizards traded for Roy Hachimura, Danny has seemed more confident and aggressive and that leads to a bigger impact on the front end," Hughes wrote.
It's not just more minutes and shots that have led to Deni Avdija's success.

The esteemed reporter added: "He has more shots. But it's not just the amount he takes, but the type. He is much more assertive when he attacks the paint. Since Hachimura's departure, he enters the paint almost twice as often, while at the same time he tries to throw less -3. Now, he can be closer to the ring, where he's effective. If he keeps it up, the 'Turbo' moniker could last. After 0/8 from the paint and only 15 minutes in the last game, Avdia held his own with a big game against The Nets".
