Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic is quietly having a superb season. He’s averaging 21 points per game by shooting 49% on 2-pointers, 45% on 3-pointers and 87% on free throws.
But he’s still slow.
In the 76ers’ 103-94 win over Utah yesterday, Bogdanovic broke ahead of everyone on the fastbreak. Yet, Al Horford “jetted” around Bogdanovic to block his shot.
That leads to one of the great questions of our time: Is it still a chase-down block if the defender gets in front of the shooter?
