Aussies in NBA: Bogut throws birthday block party

It was a quiet night for birthday boy Andrew Bogut, who finished with 4 points, 4 boards, 2 assists and 2 blocks against the Sacramento Kings. The ball didn't find its way into Bogut's hands much on offense, but he made up for it with full handfuls on his blocks.

In a mini-version of his block-assist-block sequence against the Phoenix Suns in the Warriors' last game, Bogey denied Rudy Gay on defense, then popped up on the other end to put the finishing touch on some nice Golden State passing.

He had another block later in the third quarter, erasing Kosta Koufos' attempt at the rim.

In the midst of these solid defensive efforts, Bogey also came up with the State Farm Assist of the Night, diming Brandon Rush with a beautiful bounce pass.

To top off a successful night, Bogut received this from the Warriors organization.

With this win, the Warriors are now 18-0, and will be looking to keep the streak going against the Utah Jazz, the first opponents of a big 7-game road trip. Bogey will likely have a tough time, facing off against The Stifle Tower: Rudy Gobert.
