Despite dialing in seven three-pointers, Bogdan Bogdanovic did not enjoy a win in TD Garden on Sunday.

Completing a back-to-back from the road win against the Washington Wizards on the latest edition of NBA Saturdays, the Atlanta Hawks fell short to the Boston Celtics on NBA Sundays.

“I am sad that we lost but I have my family and friends over there in Serbia watching,” he said after the game.

Bogdanovic, 31, made his first seven shots from the field, including six triples. He ended up with 23 points and 7/10 from beyond the arc. Over 16 appearances in the 2023-24 NBA Regular Season, he is averaging 15.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.4 steals per contest.

“It is late at night,” he referred to the time difference between his home country and the United States, “Even on back-to-backs when I feel tired, I was feeling tired today, when the warm-up starts, I just remember them. They give me that motivation.”

The demanding schedule continues to finish a five-game road trip. The following away fixtures are against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday and the Milwaukee Bucks on the next installment of NBA Saturdays.

His side fell to 8-8, but the C’s never trailed and improved to 13-4 without Latvian Kristaps Porzingis (left calf strain). Updating the status of his player before the game, head coach Joe Mazzulla mentioned Porzingis will be reevaluated after one week.
