Bogdanovic Leads Croatia Over China in London Eurobasket Warm-up

B. Petrovinic,

Bojan Bogdanovic had his second straight 16-point performance in London but this one was more satisfying as Croatia beat Yi Jianlian-led China by 30, 83-53. Yi scored 17, his average for the winless Chinese in the London Invitational.  Bogdanovic couldn't snap out of a three point slump, hitting 1-of-5, but was 7-for-13 overall.

The Nets 6'8" second round pick isn't likely to play in a Nets uniform till it reads "Brooklyn". He finished the tourney like his team, recouping just enough to finish with a winning record, 3-2, in the grueling five game in six day event.  Bogdanovic averaged 10.0 ppg and 4.0 rebounds in four games, having rested the middle game. Croatia now moves on to Eurobasket in Lithuania on August 31.
