Danny Avdia continued tonight (between Friday and Saturday) his good ability in the NBA and recorded a third game in a row with double digits, when he finished with a double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds in Washington’s 124:136 victory over San Antonio. The Israeli forward started with five, completed 34 minutes in which he scored 9 of 14 from the field and 3 of 6 from three and also added 6 assists.
This is the seventh game in his career in which Avdia scores over 20 points and the third in which he records a double-double with over 20 points. The absence of Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma allowed the rest of Washington’s players to flourish statistically against the weak Spurs, with Corey Kispert standing out with 26 points and Delon Wright (24) and Kristaps Porzingis (23 points and 9 rebounds) also contributing. On the other hand, Caledon Jones stood out positively with a double-double of 30 points and 10 rebounds, but it was not close to enough for the guest.
The last quarter, in which Washington scored 37 points compared to San Antonio’s 26, was the one that decided after a game that was close and volatile for the most part, and as a result, the Wizards are in the balance 41:33, with the gap from tenth place Chicago standing at two games.
