Bojan Bogdanovic was having some problems with his three point shot when playing in London last week. No more. The Nets' second round pick, a 6'8" shooting guard, hit for 6-for-8 from downtown, including five straight and the dagger as Croatia defeated Finland, 84-79.
Bogdanovic finished with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Overall, he shot 9-for-13 as he brought Croatia back from a 9-point deficit. Bogdanovic is signed for the next two years with Fenebache of the Turkish League, although the Nets have said they would like to bring him over next year.
Croatia plays Macedonia in Altyus, Lithuania at 2 p.m. ET Thursday.
