Sacramento Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica said that there’s nothing like of playing for the Serbian national team for him since the feeling is incomparable with everything else he experiences as a basketball player. “When you play for your national team it’s something really special. You can’t compare it with NBA or with EuroLeague. It’s the same sport but you take a lot of pride when you represent your country,” Bjelica said during an interview for the Kings.
Returning to the arena that played host to the end of the Jimmy Butler saga, the Timberwolves looked nothing like the team that had been rejuvenated by the arrival of Robert Covington and Dario Saric. That relentless, turnover-generating defense that wreaked havoc at Target Center was buried under an avalanche of 3-pointers, most notably from ex-Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica. “I have a coach who is trusting me,” Bjelica told The Athletic after a 141-130 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night. “He knows how to use me. Not just me, he knows how to use everybody on this team. We have a great atmosphere, great group of guys. It’s the NBA. Everything is about opportunity in this league.”
