Bogdanovic had 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 36 minutes during Thursday's 98-96 loss to the Mavericks. Bogdanovic enjoyed a strong game for Utah, finishing second on the team in scoring and knocking down three of six tries from three-point range. However, he couldn't convert his biggest shot attempt of the series, missing on a potential game-winning three-pointer with under two seconds remaining. Bogdanovic began the series by averaging 25.0 points over the first three games, but he averaged just 11.0 points over the final three contests of the six-game set.
Bogdanovic had two points (0-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound and one assist over 28 minutes during Monday's 102-77 loss to the Mavericks. Bogdanovic had a brutal performance in the Game 5 loss, missing all nine of his shots -- including five attempts from deep -- and producing next to nothing in terms of peripheral stats over 28 minutes. The Jazz were outscored by 37 points during his time on the court, emphasizing the impact that his lack of production had on the team. Bogdanovic averaged 21.8 points on 56.1 percent shooting over the first our games of the series, and he'll likely need to come closer to that level of production for Utah to extend the battle beyond Game 6.
Bogdanovic registered 24 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 126-118 loss to Dallas. The veteran forward has raised his game in the postseason, averaging 25.0 points, 5.3 boards, 2.3 threes and 2.0 assists through the first three games against the Mavericks while shooting 59.6 percent from the floor. Utah is still down 2-1 in the series despite Bogdanovic's best efforts, however, and he'll need more help if his team is going to advance to the second round.
Bogdanovic finished Monday's 110-104 loss to the Mavericks with 25 points (9-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and five rebounds over 40 minutes. Bogdanovic kept up the production in Game 2, following up his 26-point showing in Game 1 with a similar total in Monday's loss. He's also played plenty of minutes in this series, with 40 minutes logged in both games. Bogdanovic is typically an apt three-point threat, but he only attempted four shots beyond the arc in the loss, which is a meager total compared to his usual presence at the perimeter.
Bogdanovic supplied 26 points (11-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 99-93 win over Dallas. Utah wasn't shy about going to Bogdanovic throughout the game, as he often had a size advantage in his matchup. It was just his second game of the season with at least 26 points and four assists, and it's certainly possible, if not likely, that he'll continue as the Jazz's second-leading scorer throughout the series.
