Quin Snyder on Bojan Bogdanovic
Prior to the game, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder talked about Bogdanovic’s recent play. The Jazz forward entered the game against Detroit averaging 14.7 points per game but had scored more than 29 points in each of Utah’s last two games.
“More than anything just playing,” Snyder said when asked if there was a secret to Bogdanovic’s recent success. “We’ve talked about it before. He’s missed so much time and you just keep playing and not overthink it. I just try to remember to remind him how good he is and he’s really good. We saw the things that he’s done in his whole career. He did it last year. He’s in a good place and he’ll continue.”
