Aussies in NBA: Bogut quiet in easy Warriors victory
The Golden State Warriors took on the Portland Trailblazers in a game highlighted by two explosive backcourts, with the Splash Brothers facing off against Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. This showed in Andrew Bogut's stat line; he didn't have a bunch to do (Miles Plumlee and Meyers Leonard aren't exactly behemoths in the paint), and finished with a quiet 5 points, 5 boards, 1 assist, and 1 block in just under 18 minutes of action.
Still, he did get most of his points in highlight-worthy ways. Two alley-oop finishes, one powerful...
... and one with a silky light touch:
That pass though. You think you've seen all Stephen Curry can do, then he throws this no-look, over-his-own-shoulder lob to Bogey. Watching these Warriors makes for some fun times.
The fun times continue on a second game of a back-to-back (a SEGABABA), with the Dubs facing off against the Sacramento Kings next.
