Enter Deni Avdija. The Israeli forward was more aggressive in the extra role he assumed on the Wizards‘ offense and looked the part by scoring 20 points (on 7-15 from the field), grabbing five rebounds and sending five assists (also a personal best with the Wizards) to his teammates in his top performance since he joined the NBA. Washington ultimately lost despite Avdija’s efforts and consecutive shots that led a comeback charge for his team.
Avdija hit three out of his five 3-pointers overall in a row during the final minutes for a 9 -0 run that cut his team deficit to five points with 1:18 to play. Washington needed more though to complete the turnaround.
