As Mike Fratello said during Monday night's telecast on YES, Bojan Bogdanovic has become more aggressive since the All-Star Break (where he showed what he could do in the Rising Stars Challenge). He's no longer happy settling for a three-pointer from the wing.
Those who watched the 25-year-old dominate in Croatia and Turkey would have recognized the Bogdanovic on the court vs. the Timberwolves Monday night. He did a three from straight on but there were also fadeaways and pull-ups in the lane, drives to the rim, fast-break finishes, a lot of fancy footwork and an emphatic dunk at the end of a full court sprint following an Andrew Wiggins botched slam.
Overall, Bogdanovic was 10-of-15, both career highs. He finished with 21 points, one shy of his career high and the most he's scored since November when he had 22 twice as a starter. He also had four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 27 minutes, his most efficient game since joining the NBA. In March, the 6'8" shooting guard is averaging 10.4 points in 22 minutes on 52.4 percent shooting overall and 44 percent from deep.
