Bogdanovic like Petrovic
Last night was simply dreamy for Bojan Bogdanovic of the Brooklyn Nets. The Croatian forward made a new career high in the NBA scoring 44 point vs the Sixers, tying the record of Drazen Petrovic for most points scored by a foreign Nets players.
What is more, “44” is the jersey number of Bogdanovic. And he is also Croatian. Coincidence? Fate? You be the judge of that.
“I honestly didn’t know about it. It leaves me stunned. I thought that Drazen had scored more in a game” said Bogdanovic about his performance. “I am very proud that I tied this record”. Drazen had scored his own 44 points on January the 24th, 1993, few months before he was killed in a tragic car accident.
However, the”Croatian legacy” in the Nets continues through Bojan Bogdanovic. Watch his amazing game of 17/27 field goals for the 44 points, he dropped over the Sixers.
