” I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing! “, he laughs. Tonight in front of the Magic, Tomas Satoransky signed an extremely rare performance: a double-double… without scoring the slightest point.
The Wizards point guard missed his two shot attempts but had 10 rebounds and 13 assists (one assist from his career high) in 27 minutes of play.
His explanation for this funny performance? “ I do not know. I just let the game come to me. I tried to be aggressive, every time I dribbled or went aggressive towards the circle, it opened up spaces for my teammates. I tried to push the tempo from the start […] then it came naturally. »
He is not the first this season to achieve this kind of performance. At the end of December, Thunder rookie Josh Giddey signed a game with 10 assists and as many rebounds, without a single point. Only a third player has done so much in the history of the league, but that dates back to 1971: Cincinnati point guard Norm Van Lier (11 rebounds and 13 assists).
For the Czech, this match confirms his good form at the moment. After a completely failed start to the season with the Pelicans, then a whirlwind stint at Spurs, he found the Wizards, with whom the 32nd choice of the 2012 Draft had played his first seasons in the league.
In competition with Ish Smith in particular to recover the place of leader n ° 1, left vacant with the transfer of Spencer Dinwiddie, the 30-year-old player recently settled in the five of the Wizards.
” I am grateful to have a consistent playing time by being a starter after the season that I have known. It’s a necessary feeling to get back on the floor. I appreciate the way we play, very selfless. We play hard in defense “, assures the leader who, failing to score, still turns to 9 offerings per game since he started. Of these four matches, Washington won three times (Pistons, Warriors and Magic).
