For the second time in three weeks, Nets' draft choice Christian Drejer scored 29 points in an Italian League game, leading Virtus Bologna to a 88-82 win over Vertical Vision Cantu on Sunday. The 6'-9" Danish swingman hit 5-for-7 from beyond the arc, 4-for-7 inside the arc and 6-for-6 from the foul line, all in 29 minutes. He is now averaging 16.7 ppg and shooting better than 50% from 3-point land. A Bolognese sportswriter called his performance both "temporal and spiritual" in that he "inflamed the arena".
