Forward Bojan Bogdanovic scored a season-high 37 points (13-22 FG including 4-7 from three), grabbed seven rebounds and handed out four assists in the Indiana Pacers’ 122-115 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night.
The Pacers played without two keys players – forward/center Domantas Sabonis (sprained left ankle) and forward Tyreke Evans (food poisoning).
“It shows how resilient we are, how strong we are mentally. We were short-handed without Domantas, then our big (men) early on get into foul trouble. But we did a great job at the beginning of the second quarter. Again, great effort, great team defense,” Bogdanovic said after the game, per ESPN.
In the past six Pacers’ games, Bogdanovic is averaging 23.7 points per game.
The Indiana Pacers with a 41-22 record are 2nd in Central Division.
