The Washington coach and the team's players compliment Danny Avdia after the victory in San Antonio (@washwizardsil)
Danny Avdia tied his career high by scoring 25 points along with 10 rebounds and 5 assists in 37 minutes on the floor and led the Washington Wizards to their first win over the Boston Celtics after losing to them in the last four meetings.
It was the best game of the Israeli since he landed in the NBA in December 2020 and probably in his entire career, continued the momentum from the last period when he scored at least 15 points, this is the fifth game in a row - he did it for the first time in his career, and again it happens when the Wizards are missing the two injured Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma , who were not part of the impressive 111:130 victory.
Avdia's average in these games: 18.4 points with 63.8 percent from the field and 47.6 outside the arc, took 9.6 rebounds and gave 5.4 assists.
A record game in record form.

Avdia continued in the top five of the Wizards tonight, when it should be noted that Bill and Kuzma were joined by Daniel Gafford on the list of absentees, whose collaboration with Avdia grew stronger in the last games, and was a participant in the game in which the Wizards led from the start, increased the advantage as the minutes ticked by and at the break they were already down 51:64 .
Most of the output from the Israeli came in the second half, during which he also signed a beautiful seal that established a 20-point difference over Boston.

Kristaps Porzingis led the Washington scorers with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists, Monte Morris added 19 and Corey Kispert contributed 15. Boston was led as usual by Jayson Tatum, who settled for 28 minutes, 9 rebounds and 5 assists, G Yalen Brown scored 18 and Marcus Smart added 14.
Washington (42:34) stayed away from the playoffs following five losses in the last six games, but thanks to tonight's victory over the second-ranked team in the Eastern Conference, it kept the 11th place and will try to reduce the two-game gap opened by the Chicago Bulls in the fight on the play-in.
