Bogdanovic drops 23, leads Croatia to victory

Brooklyn Nets Eurostash Bojan Bogdanovic dropped a tournament-high 23 efficient points on Poland Saturday morning, leading all scorers in a 74-70 Croatian victory. Bogdanovic finished 8-16 from the field (2-7 from 3), adding six rebounds in 32 minutes of play.

Bogdanovic certainly knows what shots to take on the floor; all of his field goal attempts either came attacking the basket in the restricted area or from three-point range.

Bogdanovic’s Croatia improves to 2-1 in the FIBA Europe Group C Preliminary Round, and the victory keeps them in contention for a top-three finish in the group.

In three games so far, Bogdanovic has put up averages of 16.7 points (a team high) and 4.7 rebounds per game, shooting 50% from two-point range and 25% from three.

Next up for Bogdanovic & Croatia: Slovenia, tomorrow at 3 P.M. EST. Slovenia is 2-0 in Group C, led by NBA point guard Goran Dragic.
