Danny Avdia continues to be a bright spot in Washington.

It is not clear if the Wizards will be able to reach the playoffs or the playoffs this year, but in the meantime the team is full of hopes for the future based on the ability that the Israeli has been showing recently.

After a weak game against Portland, tonight Avdia returned to being energetic and efficient with 23 points (6 of 14 from the field, 4 of 9 from three), 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals.

Two of the moves that followed were included in the "Highlight Moves of the Night" list on the NBA website, with a behind-the-back, no-look assist that found Kiespert free.

And it sank nicely after he let his guard down.

In general, Avdia continued his personal excellent form of late, except for the game that fell against the Blazers on Saturday.

Bottom line - Avdia was included twice (!) in the top-10 of the night's moves in the NBA.

The problem is that it is not enough.

Unfortunately, the Wizards suffered a second consecutive loss tonight, night after night, when they once again lost a safe lead and surrendered 125:123 to Brooklyn in New York.

A day after losing a 20-point lead in the loss to Portland, this time Washington lost a 23-point lead, and after another very weak and disappointing second half dropped to a 28:24 balance.

However, he gets compliments, and rightly so.

Chase Hughes, an NBC reporter who covers Washington, claims that something is going on with Danny Abadia.

"There's something different about Danny lately, and I'm not just talking about the turbo movement, which is pretty cool," says Hughes, trying to analyze the Israeli's improvement, "since the Wizards traded Hachimura, Danny seems more confident, and more aggressive, and that leads to his great impact on the attack. So what exactly is happening?

"First of all, more shots were made for the basket.

Hachimura was fourth on the team in shot attempts, behind Kuzma, Beal and Porzingis, taking 40 percent of bench players' shots.

But it's not just the amount of shots Abdia has increased, but the type of shots he takes.

He is much more assertive in his entries to the basket, and it pays off for him.

In the rookie season he had 1.6 penetrations to the basket, this season he has 3.9, and since Hachimura left - 6.8 penetrations to the basket in the game.

"This is a sign of what will happen, because he has already changed his game, when his three-point attempts have also decreased. It is related to his role, and coach Anseld said that Avdia will now be able to play in his natural role. Closer to the ring. And beyond his numbers, let's hope he continues like this, and will justify his turbo celebrations."

Avdia at the end was frustrated.

Morris missed two free throws with 7 seconds to go that could have equalized, Avdia took the rebound in the attack but the ball was stolen from him under the pressure, and after the loss he lay down on the floor in frustration.

"The ball was in my hands, and I lost it," he said, "I know that if I had asked for a timeout we would have had another possession. And this is our European mentality, when there are close games and you lose them, it hurts. In the NBA, they usually say 'there is always the game The next one, but it's hard to lose for that, and I'll think about it a lot. This is the culture I grew up in. It must not happen again."
