Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 12 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, but none were more important than his last three.
As the Kings trailed 116-114 with fewer than five seconds remaining, Nemanja Bjelica in-bounded to Bogdanovic. With Lakers center Tyson Chandler guarding him, Bogdanovic took the ball to the top of the arc, stepped back, and sent Golden 1 Center into a frenzy with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer.

The Kings trailed by 11 entering the fourth quarter, and then by 15 with 6:44 remaining. Bogdanovic scored all 12 of his fourth-quarter points during that span, leading the Kings back into the win column after losing to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
The Lakers' losses didn't stop with Bogdanovic's shot, either, according to Los Angeles Times reporter Tania Ganguli.
The Lakers lost on a buzzer beater and the box score has removed one of Lonzo Ball's rebounds. So he didn't get the triple double after all.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) December 28, 2018
If Kings fans are feeling any sympathy, it's probably still being drowned out by the cheering in Sacramento after that shot.
