Bojan Bogdanovic earns Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors
The NBA announced that Pacers forward Bojan Bogdanovic has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
Bogey continued his stellar play in the absence of Victor Oladipo as the Pacers won all four games last week as part of the current five-game winning streak they will put on the line against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night. He averaged 22.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game to earn the PoW honor for the first time in his career.
Oh, and Bogey has to lead the league in no calls after getting clipped, hacked, scratched and outright hammered while trying to score.
The award makes Bogey the third Pacers player to win Player of the Week this season with Victor Oladipo and Thad Young also collecting the honor earlier in the season.
That’s a first.
At some point, folks outside Indy will realize that the Pacers aren’t simply exceeding expectations, they actually have players that make winning so many games make sense. Won’t hold my breath on that realization, though.
