Aussies in NBA: Bogut quiet in big Golden State comeback

On a night when Golden State produced a big comeback from 23 points down and Stephen Curry performed his almost-nightly flamethrower demonstration with 40 big ones, Andrew Bogut had a muted performance, finishing with only 2 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists.

Part of this was due to the lack of plays run for DeAndre Jordan, Bogut's primary assignment. Aside from boxing out, Bogut didn't have much to do on defense. On the other end of the court, Bogut took a step back from his third-top-scorer status the previous game, with Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes stepping up on that front. That said, he still managed a nice alley-oop finish from a nice screen play with Klay Thompson.

Shots like these are why Bogey is leading the team in FG%. He also showed more of his passing skills with a neat bounce pass to Curry for a jumper.

That was pretty much it for Bogey on this night, who will likely be more involved in the Warriors' next game, against the Bulls and their platoon of talented big men.
