Good morning! A lot happens in sports, even when you’re busy doing other non-sports-y stuff. So here are the top headlines and moments from yesterday, in case you missed anything while you were watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Bogdanovic droppin’ bombs
It’s always fun when relatively unknown players explode for career nights. Brooklyn Nets guard Bojan Bogdanovic poured in a career-high 44 points to lead the Nets past the lowly 76ers, 131-114. Bogdanovic shot 17-for-27 from the field, knocking down four three-pointers. It’s the most points for a Nets player since 2012. Check the highlights:
