Bogdanovic finished the campaign with his 10th straight double-digit scoring effort, although his shot went cold for most of the contest. The 26-year-old had started April off hot with three shooting efforts of 50.0 percent or better, and he wrapped up the season with new career highs in points (14.1), assists (3.8), rebounds (3.5) and steals (1.0). Bogdanovic should have a chance to compete with Harrison Barnes for the starting small forward job next fall.
After finishing with 10 points or fewer in a span of six games from March 14 to 23, Bogdanovic is trending back up again. He's averaging 16.8 points (on 50.9 percent shooting from the field) to go with 5.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 3.0 triples in 29.0 minutes per game over his last five contests. Bogdanovic looks like a must-roster player again heading into the Kings' four-game week.
Bogdanovic finished with 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 125-121 victory over the Mavericks.
Bogdanovic has a second consecutive productive effort Tuesday, ending with 14 points in 29 minutes. He had been having a terrible month prior to his last game and another strong game here is certainly a step in the right direction. It has been an indifferent season for Bogdanovic, but he has remained a fringe standard league asset throughout.
Bogdanovic's scoring total checked in second to that of Marvin Bagley's on the second unit and third overall on the Kings for the night. It was the 26-year-old's best point tally since of March, as he's endured a rough month shooting-wise. Before Sunday's 50.0 percent showing, Bogdanovic had only hit or exceeded the mark twice during March, and he'd been under 40.0 percent in eight of 11 games overall.
Bogdanovic will come off the bench for Thursday's game against Boston, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
The Kings are making some minor tweaks to their starting five, as Harrison Barnes will shift to small forward and Nemanja Bjelica is slated to start at power forward. Bogdanovic is averaging 11.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists over his previous five starts but will aim to provide a spark off the bench for Sacramento on Thursday evening.
