MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic made an impressive play in the Milwaukee Bucks’ backcourt involving a steal and a three-pointer.

With over seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, Jazz guard Mike Conley missed a floater. When Brook Lopez gathered the rebound for the Bucks, he tried to pass to former Jazzman Wesley Matthews when Bogdanovic intercepted the pass.

When he stole the ball, the first year Jazzman took a step back and drilled a three-pointer with a hand in his face.

The triple gave the Jazz a 71-62 lead in the third quarter. Bogdanovic had 21 points after the triple and nailed his fourth 3-pointer.

Entering the game against the Bucks, Bogdanovic was averaging 20.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field and 44 percent from beyond the arc.

In the first meeting against the Bucks in Salt Lake City on November 8, Bogdanovic recorded a season-high 33 points, including 5 three-pointers.
