Jazz Forward Bojan Bogdanovic Scores Easy Layup After Letting Heat Defenders Fly Past
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic scored two points on an easy layup after pump faking two Miami Heat players during the opening quarter of Utah’s game in Florida.
The Heat hosted the Jazz on Friday, February 26.
With 4:54 remaining in the first quarter, Donovan Mitchell rocketed a pass from one corner of the arc to Bogdanovic in the other.
The Jazz forward caught the pass and drove towards the hoop.
Before rising up to the rim, Bogdanovic stopped and pump-faked multiple Heat players, who flew past the Jazzman.
The move opened up the paint and provided the forward a wide-open layup.
Bogdanovic’s layup cut Miami’s lead to 17-14.
It was his second field goal of the contest and gave him five points in seven minutes.
In addition to his scoring, Bogdanovic had two rebounds.
At the end of the first quarter, the Jazz led the Heat, 30-26.
Bogdanovic led Utah with a season-high nine points in the first quarter.
