For Bojan Bogdanovic of the Indiana Pacers, he has one job when his team faces off with the Cleveland Cavaliers, to try and slow down LeBron James.

Bogdanovic hasn’t really ever been known as a great defender, but when he faces off against the Cavaliers star he usually brings his A game.

In Game 1 he held James to only 24 points with 10 of those coming at the free throw line. He shot 7-17 from the field, and 0-4 from deep. He was very physical with James which seemed to throw him off his game.

In Game 2 he will get the same assignment and he talked with reporters after the team shootaround about the challenge it is to guard him.

“You have a lot of guys on a lot of teams that can play really good basketball and drop 40 on you and it’s the same thing with LeBron. The top five or ten players in the league you can’t stop but you can make their life tough that day and that’s what we are trying to do as a team.”

“I just try to be on him with the body every time he touches the ball and make him shoot a low percentage.”

He went on to talk about how he has really put a focus on his defense this year and he feels like he has taken some big step forwards.

He also gave a lot of credit to Pacers coach Nate McMillan who he credits with really helping improve his defense. For the Pacers, they hope all the hard work he has put in will pay off the rest of this series against LeBron James, and hopefully a first round victory.
