Bojan Bogdanovic was given the day off Wednesday, after a bad shooting night Tuesday. It didn't work. Thursday night, he scored one point, going 0-for-4 overall, 0-for-3 from beyond the arc (making him 2-for-14 in his last four games). He wasn't alone. Croatia shot 34.8% overall and lost, 72-66, to Australia.
The Nets pick won't have an easy time of it the next time he suits up. Croatia will play against France and Nicolas Batum Saturday. The loss was the second for Croatia in the "friendly" tourney in advance of FIBA Eurobasket.
