January 22nd, the Wizards beat the Magic 138-118,
After the game, Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr. was interviewed.
Speaking of Hachimura, Unseld said: “Hachimura is doing great. I like the aggressiveness he has shown off the bench. I think he just needs to score one or two goals and he will be in the state.”
Speaking about substituting Hachimura with 2:14 left and one point shy of a career high, Unseld said: “I’m just worried about him playing too long. The last thing we need is someone getting hurt.
Hachimura came off the bench for 30 minutes, 13 of 22 shots, 3 of 5 three-pointers, 1 of 2 free throws, 30 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks.
