After two hard losses against New York and Toronto, the Washington Wizards came back tonight (Sunday) to win when they recorded 91: 104 at home over the Boston Celtics, thus the team’s negative balance from the U.S. capital rose 17: 7. Danny Abdia scored 8 points and added 10 rebounds.
Unlike previous games, the Israeli forward’s team started strong on offense and defense from the first moment. Abdia again did not top Scott Brooks’ five, but Russell Westbrook, Bradley Bill and Roy Hachimura were there and led the Wizards to 22:29 at the end of the first quarter, which Abdia finished with first points of the game when he sniped a three on the buzzer.
Boston remained in the picture thanks to good ability from Kamba Walker and Jaylen Brown, but Raul Neto and Robin Lopez responded from the other side and maintained Washington’s advantage in the second quarter, in which Abdia added two more points to his balance, which was undefeated in the first half, which ended in 43: 55 to locals.
Washington’s double-digit advantage only grew during the second half, but unfortunately for Abdia, his balance sheet did not remain perfect in terms of his shooting percentage. The Israeli as mentioned picked up a large number of rebounds, but missed several shots for three and failed to finish with a double-double. During the closing minutes Boston managed to minimize the damage a bit, on the way to a 90: 104 loss at the end of the game.
