Bojan Bogdanovic back on top of Euroleague scoring

CSKAbasket.com

After 11 weeks atop the Euroleague in scoring, Bojan Bogdanovic fell into second last week, behind Alexis Ajinca, signed this week by the Pelicans.  After a 20 point game (in 25 minutes) Thursday, Bogdanovic is now averaging 18.1 points a game, a point ahead of Ajinca.

In Thursday's game, a blowout vs. JSF Nanterre of France, Bogdanovic hit 8-of-13, including 1-of-3 from deep, playing sparingly in the second half.  He's now shooting 55/44/88 for the season and is also 11th in the Euroleague in player efficiency.  Bogdanovic is generally seen as the second best "Euro-Stash", those players drafted by NBA teams still in Europe. The top pick is Nikola Mirotic, a 6'10" forward whose rights are owned by the Bulls. Mirotic, who's been compared to Toni Kukoc, is No. 1.

Valentin Le Clezio, a French basketball blogger and NetsDaily poster (BBfromLA) was on hand in Nanterre. Here are his impressions:

"OKC, Portland, Boston and Orlando were there to scout draft prospects. No Nets. Bogdanovic looked really, really good. Coming off the bench, his first 4 possessions: 4 post-ups and 4 buckets. Then he went outside a little bit and showed great touch. Not the first time I've watched him live but he looks really big. Easily 6'8 and strong physically. Great post-up threat at the NBA level. NBA ready and certainly would be in the rotation right now."
