Bojan Bogdanovic hits big shots in big Euroleague win


The Nets won't have their own pick (in either round) next June. But hopefully, by mid-July, they will have signed a player who could be as good as many players in the second half of the draft.

Bojan Bogdanovic once again showed he's a big shot player Friday when he hit big shot after big shot in Fenerbahce's 78-72 win over CSKA Moscow, Mikhail Prokhorov's old club, in the Russian capital. Bogdanovic finished with 18 points, his average, on 4-11 shooting, including 2-of-4 from three. He also went to the line eight times, making all eight, and grabbed five rebounds.

The visitors trailed by six early in the fourth quarter, but got big threes from Linas Kleiza and Bogdanovic to pull away for the big win. The 6'8" swingman iced the game with two of his eight free throws with seven seconds left. Fener improved to 7-1 in Group A, while dropping CSKA to 5-3.  Bogdanovic is now shooting 93.3 percent from the line in Euroleague action, along with 55.2 percent from two-point range and 42.9 from three. His 18.5 per game average is tops in Europe as is that gaudy free throw percentage.
