Danny Avdia landed in the best basketball league in the world more than two years ago, but tonight (between Friday and Saturday) he crossed the 20-point mark for the seventh time in total.
The Israeli scored 21 and also took 11 rebounds in the home victory of the Washington Wizards 124:136 over the San Antonio Spurs, thanks to which they broke a streak of four losses and remained in the fight for the play-in games.
The Israeli again went up in the top five in the absence of the injured Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma and recorded a third game in a row in which he scores in double figures, his second game this week in which he finishes with a double-double and the media in the United States do not ignore this either.
Significant improvement on the offensive side.

"Abadiah's improvement when it comes to shooting is noticeable," praised the local "NBC" network that broadcasts the team's games, "it's a huge difference, he penetrates the basket more and looks confident in himself."
Reporter Chase Hughes, who covers the Wizards for NBC, also praised Avdia's shooting abilities and noted that for the second straight game he set up a beautiful layup for Daniel Gafford.
The coach of the Wizards, Wes Anseld Jr., was asked about Avdia's ability and also about Corey Kispert who scored 26 points and recorded a career high: "There are difficult periods, but I think there has been an improvement in the attack on the part of the team. Both of them are not chasing shots, they have raised the level of aggressiveness , play faster and I'm happy that they get opportunities and take advantage of them. They improve, develop and play with confidence and that helps us a lot."
