Bojan Bogdanovic drains game-winning three, Jazz hold off Bucks comeback (VIDEO)


The Milwaukee Bucks were dreadful in the first half, scoring just 35 points on 21.7 percent shooting against the Utah defense. They trailed by 20 at the break.

But led by Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s 28 second-half points, the Bucks battled all the way back to tie the game at 100-100 on a Khris Middleton free throw with :08 seconds left.

Then Bojan Bogdanovic saved the game for Utah.

Bogdanovic finished the night with 33 points on 9-of-19 shooting with five made threes. Mike Conley got his groove going with 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting. The win improves the Jazz to 6-3 on the season. Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points and 13 rebounds for the 6-3 Bucks.

For a Jazz team that has struggled on offense to start the season — 26th in the league coming in, and they scored less than a point per possession in this one — this was the kind of shot and win that could serve as a springboard.
