SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic stole the ball on an errant throw and took it down the court for a basket during the opening quarter of Utah’s game against Sacramento Kings.

The Kings hosted the Jazz at Golden 1 Center on Wednesday, April 28.

With 3:38 remaining in the first quarter, Bogdanovic intercepted a bad pass by Kings guard Buddy Hield.

Bogdanovic took the ball coast-to-coast down the court before banking the ball off the backboard for two points.

The Jazzman’s field goal gave the Jazz a 26-18 lead.

Bogdanovic’s bucket drew a reaction from Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell, who was not at the game after suffering a right ankle sprain earlier in April.

“Yeah BOJAN!!!!” Mitchell tweeted after Bogdanovic’s bucket.

At the end of the first quarter, the Jazz owned a 30-27 lead.

During the opening 12 minutes, Bogdanovic scored 12 points on 4-5 field goals. He was 4-4 from the free throw line.

Bogdanovic also added one assist, one steal, and one block.

The Jazz forward posted a plus-five rating during his first nine minutes on the hardwood.

This season, Bogdanovic is averaging 15.6 points per contest on 42.0 percent shooting.

Utah’s game against Sacramento is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and 97.5 FM.
