After 26-point outburst, Bogdanovic now Europe's scoring leader

Fenerbahce

Bojan Bogdanovic hit only 1-of-4 two point shots Friday, but wound up with 26 points, hitting 6-of-9 three pointers and 6-of-7 from the line as Fenerbahce beat Partizan, 88-78, in Euroleague play. The performance vaulted the 6'8" shooting guard into the Euroleague scoring lead.  He's also averaging 18.3 in the Turkish league

Partizan, carved out an eight-point lead in the first half backed by 8,000 noisy fans in their packed Pionir Arena before tempers flared early in the third quarter when their coach Dusko Vujosevic was ejected for continuously protesting.

Bogdanovic took full advantage and buried 13 of his game-high 26 points in the third period as Fenerbahce swung the tide their way and reaffirmed their commanding position in Group A.

Bogdanovic told Reuters: "Everyone knows what kind of coach (Zeljko) Obradovic is and we got going in the third quarter after he drew several set plays on the blackboard at halftime to create open shots for me.

"There is plenty of depth in our roster and we are all hopeful that we can carry our good form into the latter stages of the 24-team competition."

Fener has now won 12 straight games since being beaten by the Thunder on October 5, a game in which the Nets pick scored 19 points.

Bogdanovic and the Bulls first round pick in 2011, Nikola Mirotic, are viewed as the top "Euro-Stash," players whose draft fights are held by NBA teams.
