What factors are causing Bojan Bogdanovic to turn into a useless lump when he’s on the road? The home-court advantage is well documented in every sport, but there must be other factors in play for his home (12-ish) and away (5-ish) averages to be so different.
The main problem might be nutritional. There are likely at least a few places to get Croatian food in the New York City area. Maybe not the most authentic stuff, and nothing on the level of the Janjetina his mother makes, but edible. But in Charlotte? Not happening, you’ll eat generic room service slop like everyone else.
I know if I try to make highlights after eating something unsatisfactory it really diminishes my performance. Same with Bojan. It’s difficult to ball at maximum hardness without some traditional Zagrebački odrezak providing strength and power.
