Mike Fratello knows Bojan Bogdanovic plays well in big games. He calls what the Euro-Net did to his Ukraine National Team in the FIBA Eurobasket Tournament during the summer.
"We were up 79-77 with four seconds left," Fratello told NetsDaily back in November. "He has the ball, our guy is in right spot, has his hand in front of the ball and Bogdanovic cocks it back a little more, shoots it a little higher, makes the three and we lose, 80-79. He is very confident, he gets to the foul line. Fans are going to be happy when he comes over."
Wednesday night, Bogdanovic's Fenerbahce team had a big game in the Turkish League. If they beat Galatasary, they would move into first place. The 6'8" Croatian swingman led Fener to a 76-67 win, scoring 18 points on 7-for-14 (missing all four of his three's). Ilkan Karaman, the 6'9.5" back-up center drafted by the Nets last June, finished with five points and five rebounds in 13 minutes.
