Croatian international Bojan Bogdanović has equalled a 23-year-old NBA record held by Dražen Petrović on Tuesday…
Bogdanović scored a career-high 44 points and equalled Petrović’s 1993 record for the most points ever scored by a foreign-born Net in Brooklyn’s 131-114 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers at Barclays Center on Tuesday night.
“I didn’t honestly know that he scored 44, so I was surprised; I thought that he scored even more. So I am really proud to tie his record,” Bogdanović, whose previous high was 28 points, said after the match.
Bogdanović has only scored 20 points or more four times this season.
“He’s a big wing who can shoot. I’m happy he didn’t play against us the last time we played against them,” Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said after the Croatians performance.
Petrović scored his 44 points in 1993 against Houston.
