Bojan Bogdanovic Moves Into 5th Place On Jazz All-Time Made Threes List
SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic moved to fifth place on the Jazz all-time three’s made list when he tickled the twine for a third quarter triple.
The Warriors (48-29) are hosting the Jazz (46-31) at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California on Saturday, April 2.
Bogdanovic has made 541 threes for the Jazz in three seasons, passing Bryon Russell’s 540 made in nine seasons. Gordon Hayward is next on the list at 689 threes. Current Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is second in Jazz franchise history with 952 made threes entering Saturday’s game. Jordan Clarkson is 10th with 479 threes made.
Bogdanovic has scored 12 points in 16 minutes tonight for the Jazz in just his second game since returning from a calf contusion that forced him to miss the previous nine games.
The Warriors have beaten the Jazz two out of the three times they have played the season. The Jazz won their last matchup in Salt Lake on February 9. Bojan Bogdanovic led the Jazz in scoring with 23 points in the 111-85 win.
Both teams have struggled with health as they fight for playoff position with the playoffs beginning in less than two weeks. The Jazz entered the nights action having lost five in a row before beating the shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers in Salt Lake on Thursday night. The Warriors have lost four straight and seven of eight since Steph Curry went down with a right foot sprain.
Entering the day, the Warriors lead the Mavericks by half a game for third place in the Western Conference. The Jazz sit 1.5 games behind the Mavericks, in fifth place. If the season ended today, Golden State would host Denver and the Jazz would travel to Dallas for a first round matchup with the Mavericks.
The Jazz lead the Warriors 71-58 with eight minutes left in the third quarter.
The Jazz and Warriors can be heard on The Zone Sports Network. The game is also televised on AT&T SportsNet and FuboTV.
