Croatia’s Bojan Bogdanović Breaks Washington NBA Franchise Record

He has only been at his new club for just on two weeks but he has already broken a club record.

Croatian international Bojan Bogdanović has broken a Washington NBA franchise record on Tuesday night with a 100% record from the free-throw line – nailing 16 out of 16.

It was the first time anyone from the Washington Wizards or Bullets has scored a 100% record with over 15 free throws.

It was a great night for Bogdanović who was his team’s highest scorer with 29 points in their 131-127 victory over Phoenix.


Bogdanović was traded to Washington from the Brooklyn Nets in late February. He left Brooklyn with a couple of records also.

He scored a career-high 44 points in one match, equalling Dražen Petrović’s 1993 record for the most points ever scored by a foreign-born Nets player.

Bogdanović then passed his idol in another record when he scored his 223rd three-pointer for the Nets, passing the late Petrović who scored 220 in his career at the Nets.
