If you missed this morning’s Sacramento Kings-Brooklyn Nets preseason game, you might have missed Mirza Teletovic firing at the basket with total disregard, burying six three-pointers in nine attempts after his inclusion in the starting lineup. Teletovic fired them all: wide open from the corner, off-balance with a hand in his face, catch-and-shoot off a curl, and more, leading a second-half comeback that erased a double-digit lead in the third quarter.
Teletovic, who shared this video after the game, scored a team-high 22 points in 27 minutes and made a few nifty plays, including a touch pass on a fast break to Bojan Bogdanovic for a layup.
Teletovic improved over his first two years in Brooklyn, shining after getting a role under Jason Kidd’s Nets last year and hitting 39 percent of his three-point attempts last season. With Paul Pierce out of the picture, there’s a chance for Teletovic to make an even bigger mark in a contract year.
