"There is no one happy with me": Porzingis' part in Avdia's flourishing - voila! sport


In the US, they focused on the Latvian's contribution to improving the Israeli's ability in the last games: "I like that you can see how much he wants it"

It is clear to everyone that there is a close connection between Danny Abedia's flourishing in the last few games and the fact that Roy Hachimura left the Washington Wizards in a trade, but even the player who actually stayed in the Israeli's team has an effect on the increase in his productivity.

The reference is to Kristaps Porzingis, who serves as a kind of mentor to the forward who is five years younger than him, and thus they focused yesterday (Thursday) on "NBC".

On the night between Wednesday and Thursday, Avdia finished the game against the Charlotte Hornets with an impressive statistical line of 20 points, 13 rebounds, 5 of 8 for two points and 3 of 5 from beyond the arc, when since the departure of Hachimura he averages 15.3 points , 8.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game, with percentages of 47% from the field and 40% for three.

"I don't think there's anyone happier than me to see him play at this level and provide us with that spark," Porzingis said of Avdia.

"Danny is a great guy and a great teammate. What I like most about him is that you can see how much he really wants it. He wants to be a great player, I believe this is just the beginning of his career."

Before the start of the game against Charlotte, which came after three consecutive losses, Porzingis was the one who spurred Avdia when he told him that he "needs 'Turbo' tonight" - in reference to the new nickname the Israeli received.

The Latvian asked, and received.

They each described their friend as a kind of "brother" in the post-match press conference.

"NBC" reporter Chase Hughes said that the two spend time together off the court, but apparently not enough for Avdia, who suggested that Porzingis spend the day off the Wizards received talking about life in a cafe in Washington, and then listening to house music while undergoing treatments at the team's training facility. But the Latvian politely refused: "So now I'm super angry with KP and I probably won't talk to him for two days, because I'm angry," Avdia was quoted as saying.
