Bojan Bogdanovic wins NBA Player of the Week for week 20

A well-deserved award for the NBA’s most interesting development that no one is talking about

The NBA has named Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic as Player of the Week for the Western Conference. Russell Westbrook was named Player of the Week for the Western Conference.

Bogdanovic has been a revelation recently leading the Jazz to a 5-game winning streak that has helped the Jazz hold strong to the #1 record in the Western Conference. That win streak included a big win against Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets where he scored a career high 48 points, and hit 8/11 threes, to take the Jazz over the top.

Bogdanovic has been on a tear for about a month now and it’s one of the most under-the-radar developments in the league. If he can keep this up as the 3rd option for the Utah Jazz when they enter the playoffs they could make some serious noise. The noise they would have made in the playoffs last season.
