Nene Nervous for First Wizards Game
The rest of the evening, Nene showed why the Wizards added him to the roster at the trade deadline in a three-team deal. He set solid screens to get his teammates open looks, played effective defense in the low post, and finished with 22 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in the decisive victory.
“It’s been crazy days. I was a little nervous for this first game. I just tried to work hard and try to have fun,” Nene said. “That was really good, man. I know God have a plan and I know He will bless this team and we’re going to do a lot of good things.”
