Atlanta Hawks season highlights for Bogdan Bogdanovic

The month of April 2021 was one that Bogdan Bogdanovic will never forget. Not only did he save the season for the Atlanta Hawks, but he set the single month record for 3-point makes in a month for the Atlanta Hawks. The player that he beat was none other than 3-point shooting legend Kyle Korver.

This helped Bogdanovic score double figures for the last 23 games he played for the Hawks season. In fact, Bogdanovic had double figures in 28 of the final 29 games he played for the Hawks. Part of this was due to Trae Young being injured for part of the time, and Bogdanovic being asked to help carry the team.

Bogdanovic had some tremendous games from beyond the arc. He made eight 3-point shots against the Charlotte Hornets. He also had seven makes against the Portland Trail Blazers and the Washington Wizards. Against the Blazers he made them all in the first half and was simply unstoppable.

A highlight for the Serbian shooting sensation is that he made five or more 3-point attempts 14 times on the season. The Hawks had an 11-3 record when he made this many perimeter shots. When Bogdanovic was on, he made all the difference to the Hawks squad.
