November 30,  2019 – The brilliant Bojan Bogdanovic was credited with 22 of the 28 points the Utah Jazz scored in the last quarter of their game against Memphis on Friday night. 

HRT reports that Bojan Bogdanovic achieved a season record in the Utah Jazz victory over Memphis (103:94) on Friday. Bogdanovic finished the game with 33 points, 16 of which he scored in the last quarter.

Also brilliant was Slovenian Luka Doncic, who became the first player after Oscar Robertson and Russell Westbrook to hit a triple-double average in one calendar month with a minimum of 30 points.

Bogdanovic tallied 33 points and eight rebounds, as well as two assists. Both assists came in the last quarter and were for three-pointers, so Bogdanovic, in addition to 16 points, was credited with 22 of the 28 points the Jazz scored in the final quarter. 

On social media, some fans have already started calling for Bojan Bogdanovic’s invitation to the All-Star weekend, but how could they not when he is currently one of the best shooters in the league? Namely, Bogdanovic is currently averaging 21.5 points per game and is ranked 27th in the NBA league’s top scorers.

When it comes to three-pointers, Bogdanovic is at an unreal 46.6 percent and is 10th in the league. This is an average of 3.3 three-pointers per game.

Slovenian Luka Doncic led his Dallas Mavericks to victory against the Phoenix Suns 120:113, scoring 42 points, and adding nine rebounds and 11 assists.

With that result, Doncic ended the calendar month with a triple-double average of 32.4 points per game. Doncic thus became the first player in NBA history after Oscar Robertson and Russell Westbrook to finish the calendar month with a triple-double average of points over 30.

Ivica Zubac scored eight points (shots in play 3/5, free throws 2/2), with five rebounds and one assist for the Los Angeles Clippers, who were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs 97:107.

Ante Zizic played only three minutes for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and in that time he recorded one rebound. Cleveland lost to Milwaukee 110:119 at home.
