Bogdanovic’s Career-High Leads Nets Over Sixers

(NEW YORK) — Bojan Bogdanovic scored a career-high 44 points as the Brooklyn Nets trounced the Philadelphia 76ers 131-114 on Tuesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Bogdanovic, who sat out Friday night’s loss to the Sixers in Philadelphia due to rest, made an impact on the game right from the jump. In the first quarter, he scored 17 points on 6-of-6 shooting to help Brooklyn take a 32-15 lead.

The Nets cruised into halftime with a 71-51 halftime lead.  Philly made a run in the second half, but Bogdanovic continued to hit big shots and the Nets were able to pull out the win.  Sean Kilpatrick added 19 points, while Brook Lopez had 18 points and 10 rebounds.  Thaddeus Young chipped in a double-double of his own for the Nets with 14 points and 16 boards.

Isaiah Canaan led the Sixers with 20 points in the loss.  The 131 points scored by the Nets are the most points they’ve scored in a regulation game since the 1999-2000 season.

Notes: Bogdanovic became the first Nets player to score 40+ points in a game since former Net Deron Williams did it on March 8, 2013.  He also passed Williams for the most points scored by a Nets player at Barclays Center.  Williams still holds the franchise’s single-game point record with 57, which he accomplished back in 2012.

The Nets are planning on signing big man Henry Sims to a 10-day contract.  The 25-year-old last played for Grand Rapids of the D-League.  With Sims soon to be in the fold, the roster will stand at 15 players.
