Bojan Bogdanovic’s Shot Bounces Back During Nets/Jazz Game
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic bounced out of a shooting slump during Utah’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The Jazz hosted the Nets at Vivint Arena on Wednesday, March 24.
Before the contest, the Jazzman said he was in the worst shooting slump of his career.
“This is probably the worst stretch of my career shooting the ball,” Bogdanovic said. “I’m making bad decisions when to shoot, and when to calm down and wait for the shot to come to me.”
With 10:04 to go in the third quarter, Bogdanovic buried a 24-foot three-pointer.

21 seconds later, the forward connected on another attempt from beyond the arc.
Later in the quarter, he buried another three.
Bogdanovic’s shots gave him 18 points.
The Jazz forward was 5-8 on field goals, including 4-6 on triples.
Back to back threes from Bogey and he's got 15 points including 4-6 from deep.
He didn't sound terribly discouraged about his play recently this morning, and seemed confident he'd find his stroke.
