Danny Avdia is in top form.

It cannot be denied, after tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday) he equaled a career high when he scored 25 points and led the Washington Wizards to an impressive 111:130 over the Boston Celtics, a victory that still keeps alive the team's chances of starting the play-in - even if they are not high.

The Israeli participated in 37 minutes, more than any other player and also contributed 10 rebounds and 5 assists in a game in which Washington won without Bradley Beal, Kyle Kuzma and Daniel Gafford.

At the end, Avdia admitted: "I just don't think too much, but try to make the right decisions. I invest a lot and try to be aggressive."

When Avdia was asked about "not thinking too much" as he claimed, he clarified: "I guess I just try not to think, but play my game, try to create opportunities for my friends as well and when I have the ball I feel great."

Avdia also found himself struggling during the game with Marcus Smart, last season's defensive player, and talked about an exchange between them during the game: "I got upset when I was whistled for an attacking foul. Then I scored on him and yes, I think there was a bit of trash talk on my part. I mean he scored I made a three before, so we evened it out. It was a funny moment and the bench really liked it. After the game I told him to let me talk dirty to him and Kyle Kuzma even told me 'you should talk like that'. Marcus said if he talked like that he would have gotten a technical , It was funny".

Kuzma, by the way, tweeted at the end: "Danny's best game I've seen."

Washington coach Wes Anseld Jr. praised Avdia, saying: "He's put together four good games now. It's the pace, the intensity, the level of aggressiveness, he doesn't let a bad action or foul distract him but just keeps playing. I like that he's attacking more The basket. All season he was good in the pick-and-roll, but the passing game is another element in his development."


Kristaps Porzingis, the center who led the Wizards' scoring with 32 points, praised Avdia that their collaboration is getting stronger: "He's proving how good he is. Danny has the talent, he just needs a little more freedom and confidence and he can do great things."

In the United States they were flattered and on NBC they magnified it when they wrote: "Abadiah came up big against Boston. He finished with a double-double against one of the best defensive teams in the league, it's not a bad day at all at the office for him."
