MANILA, Philippines—Even on a good shooting night, Serbia’s Bogdan Bogdanovic still wasn’t satisfied.

In the Serbians’ dominant 87-68 win over Lithuania in the 2023 Fiba World Cup that sealed their semifinal trip, Bogdanovic finished with a game-high 21 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

To add to that, the Atlanta Hawks player shot 69.2 percent from the field.

Bogdanovic, though, still wasn’t happy with his outside shooting despite an almost perfect game from the Serbians.

“I still think, me personally, I didn’t shoot well from three but I’m happy that we won,” said the sharpshooter.

Bogdanovic sank two out of his four tries from deep for a 50 percent clip.

He, however, went for a flawless 7-for-7 from the three-point area and the field in their last victory over Dominican Republic, finishing with 20 points. 

It wasn’t only Bogdanovic who shot lights out as the whole Serbian team sank 33 of their 60 shots for an efficient 55 percent.

“I actually didn’t know we shot 55 percent, that’s good,” said the shooting guard.

Vanja Marinkovic, who backs up Bogdanovic in the two position, also lauded the squad’s sound shooting.

“Like in every game, if you make shots, you’re going to win the game. If you don’t make shots, you won’t. It’s simple,” he said.
