Ilkan Karaman continues to show three-point stroke in Europe

Fenerbahce barely made the Euroleague Round of 16 on Friday, but in Turkey they continue to dominate, rising to 9-1 in Turkey's Beko League thanks to another blowout win, this time over Hacettepe, 92-59. Bojan Bogdanovic started and played 27 minutes Sunday, scoring 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting, 2-for-4 from both short and long range. He also handed out four assists, which considering how European scorekeepers define assists, is a big number for a 6'8" swingman.

But for the Nets, the bigger story out of the game may have been the improving game of Ilkan Karaman. Karaman, taken at #57 back in June, scored 14 points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked two shots in 15 minutes off the bench. Karaman, who is known as "K-Mart" in Turkey (in part for his neck tattoo), shot 6-for-9, including 2-for-3 from downtown. The 6'9" back-up center is now shooting 61 percent from two point range and 36 percent from three for the season in the two leagues combined. He reportedly has an "NBA out" at the end of the season.

In three weeks, the two will go up against Efes Anadolu of Istanbul with former Nets Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic.
