Danny Abdia: Forward Washington scored 8 in the win over Miami

by time news

The Washington Wizards and Danny Abdia retaliated tonight (Saturday through Sunday) in Miami for the painful loss Thursday-Friday night, with a narrow 100-103 victory in a battle between two of the strongest teams in the East. Abdia who played nearly 27 minutes finished with eight points (3 of 7 from the field), five rebounds, four assists, a steal and three fouls, including the first technical in his NBA career.

After a fairly close first half, the Heat recorded an incredible 2:18 run that took the Wizards all the wind out of the sails en route to a promising 16-point lead. But the stubborn Washington did not give up again, and like the previous game between the two started with its own run, slowly bit the difference until it got back to business in the fourth quarter.

The decisive quarter also did not go smoothly for the Wizards, who again fell behind and had to chase the opponent. Spencer Dinwiddie and Contevius Caldwell Pop were the ones who made sure to do so on the way to a 2:15 run that arrived just in time, and ended with a prestigious win over powerful Miami.

Abdia, who finished with a plus-minus four, suffered his first technical foul of his career towards the end of the first half, while retaining Jimmy Butler. The Miami forward tried to penetrate Abdia, went up for a shot and a doubt was blocked. The referees whistled for the offense when the Israeli did not like it, slammed the ball on the floor nervously and technically absorbed. He looked very nervous after the whistle, as Bradley Bill and Caldwell Pop rushed to calm him down while Butler seemed to filter a few words at him.

The winner’s list of goals was led by Bill with 21 points (1 from 7 to 3), to which he also added nine assists. Butler stood out with 29.
