Summary: Oberdeiro - Real Madrid 84:78 (Sport1)

It wasn't pretty or impressive, but Washington marked tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday) and an important game, which establishes them in the top ten in the East, and where they reach the play-in.

The Wizards beat weak Detroit 117:119 on the road, thanks to a buzzer-beating basket by Daniel Gafford, who continues his recent excellent form.

Thanks to the victory, Washington snapped a two-game losing streak and climbed to a record of 31 wins against 34 losses, leading by two games over 11th-ranked Chicago, and half a game away from ninth-ranked Toronto.

For Danny Avdia, it was a rather frustrating evening.

The Israeli forward hoped to continue the momentum after the 17 points he scored the other day against Milwaukee, but this time he was satisfied with only 21 minutes, and a minimal contribution.

He finished the game with 7 points after shooting only twice from the field (2-for-2 including 1-for-1 from three, 2-for-2 from the free throw), added 5 rebounds and two assists, but also lost 4 balls and received 4 fouls - 3 of them within a minute One in the last quarter, which came after he once again messed with the referees and again claimed that he was disqualified due to an elbow sent to him and did not respond with a whistle to his credit for the foul.

Avdia went down to the bench frustrated and angry after the series of fouls, and did not return to the floor for the last few minutes.

Too busy with the judges?

The game was close in most of its phases.

Returning from a one-game absence, Kyle Kuzma showed good offensive ability and joined Bradley Beal, who continued his good form of late, to keep the Wizards in the game.

At halftime, Detroit led by 5, but lost the lead heading into the final quarter.

The Pistons led by two points with 50 seconds left on a basket by Jaden Ivey, but Beal scored on the other end, missed an airball on the decisive layup, but saw Gafford make amends with an offensive rebound to give Washington the game.

Bradley Beal finished as the leading scorer for the Wizards with 32 along with 7 rebounds and 7 assists.

Kristaps Porzingis finished with 24 and 7, and Kyle Kuzma had 23. Corey Kispert added 16 off the bench while Gafford, the hero of the victory, settled for 8 and 7 rebounds.

On the other hand, the Pistons, who suffered their ninth consecutive loss and dropped to 51:15, were led by Jayden Ivey with 26 and 12 assists and James Wiseman with 21 and two blocks.

Marvin Bagley contributed 15, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
