Bogdanovic rose to the occasion and Papagiannis didn’t
There are 30 NBA players that are currently playing in the FIBA EuroBasket 2017 tournament. Two members of the Sacramento Kings are playing and performing very differently.
Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 30 points against Latvia, who are led by Kristaps Porzingis. It was great to watch two young talented European players make an impact on both ends of the floor.
Bogdanovic was very efficient as he went 9-of-17 from the field and 9-of-10 from the charity stripe. Porzingis finished with 18 points in his official debut for the senior national team.
With a 92-82 victory over Latvia, Serbia is now a favorite in Group D of the EuroBasket 2017.
Georgios Papagiannis started in his first game for Greece and finished with a +21 in the plus/minus department in only seven minutes of action. But he didn’t score and only grabbed one rebound. He only played two minutes and didn’t score in a loss to France today.
