Bojan Bogdanovic had his best performance of the 2022-23 NBA Regular Season, scoring 30 points with 10/14 from the field and 5/6 from deep to give the Detroit Pistons the 131-125 win in overtime against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Croatian superstar was supported by Killian Hayes, who struggled at the beginning of his professional career but he’s now finding more minutes and responsibilities.

He scored 8 of his 22 points in OT, adding 8 assists and 4 rebounds.

“We need a point guard who can play quarterback on the floor. We don’t have a lot of one-on-one players, so we need that quarterback to organize the offense and make sure everyone is getting touches. He’s our best playmaker, our best point guard, and our best defender against point guards. That’s what we need from him”, coach Casey said about him.

Luka Doncic delivered once again on the losing side, recording a double-double of 35 points and 10 assists, grabbing 5 rebounds.

Maxi Kleber added 10 points and 3 rebounds off the bench, but it wasn’t enough.

“Bogey had his European basketball pride at stake tonight, playing against Luka, and he did what he does. I’m sure Luka grew up watching Bogey, so they both wanted to have big games tonight”, the Detroit Pistons head coach added.
