Dec. 28 (UPI) — The Sacramento Kings’ broadcast staff went wild on the decision of Bogdan Bogdanovic’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer in opposition to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Former Kings star Doug Christie and Grant Napear have been on the decision throughout the dramatic 117-116 victory on Thursday on the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif.
The Kings trailed the Lakers 116-114 with lower than 5 seconds on the clock throughout the possession. Nemanja Bjelica threw in a move from the sideline to seek out the Kings guard on the high of the 3-point arc. Bogdanovic caught the move and dribbled in opposition to Tyson Chandler earlier than stepping in for a pretend. He then stepped again and launched a deep trey.
The buzzer sounded because the ball fell via the web. Bogdanovic knew the shot was entering into from the second he launched the ball. He jogged to the opposite finish of the courtroom as he watched the shot go in.
While the sector was clearly going loopy for the house squad, Christie and Napear matched the depth.
“Bogdanovic, three seconds,” Napear mentioned on the NBC Sports broadcast. “Bogie, for the win!”
“Bogdan Bogdanovic,” Napear screamed, as Christie stared in a surprised trend.
“Pack em up and send em home, Grant Napear,” Christie mentioned.
“If you don’t like that, you don’t like Kings basketball,” Napear added. “Oh boy!”

Bogdanovic had a team-high 23 factors, together with his game-winning trey. De’Aaron Fox had 15 factors, 12 assists and 9 rebounds within the win. Kyle Kuzma paced the Lakers with a game-high 33 factors.
“That’s the shot I’ve really worked on,” Bogdanovic advised reporters. “Believe it or not, I’ve worked on it every time. I always believe nothing comes with luck. Everything is dedication and hard work.”
“As soon as I released it, I knew.”
