Israeli NBA basketball player Omri Casspi successfully performed on the court Friday night during a game between his team, the Golden State Warriors, and the Washington Wizards. Throughout Casspi’s 13 minutes of playtime, he scored eight points, grabbed three rebounds and gave one assist – likely one his best games of the season.
Casspi, who recently returned from an ankle injury, scored his first basket since joining the team this season. The Israeli forward played a hand in some of the game’s most pivotal moments, gave a strong defense and was one of the factors behind the Warriors’ sudden victory over the Wizards with a score of 120 to 117.
After the successful game, coach Steve Kerr referred to Casspi’s performance and complimented him on his hard work. “I can’t say enough about Omri, staying ready, hardly played him all year,” Kerr said. “I told him after the game, it’s just karma. You know you work that hard, you put that kind of effort in…he was the story of the game.”
