This also happens. After excelling in the first of two consecutive games against Orlando, Dani Avdija suffered a slump tonight (Friday through Saturday) as his Washington Wizards again lost to the Magic, this time 130-125 — their 11th loss in the last 12 games.

The Israeli forward started with five and also scored the first basket of the game after less than half a minute, and shortly thereafter raised his lead to 4 points, but by the end of the game - with the little he threw - he mostly missed and finished with only 6 points on 2-of-7 shooting from the field. On the other hand, he added 5 assists, but that did not make up for the weak ability he showed in 20 minutes on the court.
It was Kyle Kuzma who kept Washington close to Orlando with 27 points, but the opponent was better and enjoyed excellent play from two of its players that secured the victory and improved to 5-14. It was Franz Wagner with 31 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists, and Paolo Banchero who added 28 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists.
The Wizards and Avdija will now rest until Wednesday-Thursday night, when they host the mighty Philadelphia Sixers, who lost tonight without Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey to the Boston Celtics 125-119.
