Nene Hilario Drops The Hammer On Rudy Gobert
With the Wizards recent struggles where they fell from (in the eyes of many) a possible Eastern Conference contender to possibly a team that won't make it out of the first round thanks in large part to a stretch from late January where they lost 11 of 13 games. Recently, the Wizards have began to find their stride again. Riding a 4 game winning streak, the Wizards visited Utah with hopes of continuing their winning ways. As we all know for the Wizards to have even the slightest hope of coming out of the east, their post of Marcin Gortat and Nene Hilario will have to consistently set the tone. Against the Jazz, Nene did just that. Nene would take the pass from Paul Pierce and roll to the basket finishing strong over the Jazz 7'2 center Rudy Gobert. The dunk gave the Wizards a much welcome jolt of energy that carried them to the 88-84 win, their fifth straight. Watch the great dunk by Nene below.
