Since his transition from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Charlotte Hornets, Vasilije Micic has been steadily improving with each game.

The Serbian guard reached a new career-high in scoring during a road triumph against the Memphis Grizzlies, tallying 25 points along with eight assists—an exceptional performance even by NBA standards.

What’s more impressive is Micic’s efficiency. He shot 5/6 from beyond the arc and 9/10 from the field overall while contributing two steals on just two turnovers. Hornets head coach Steve Clifford also highlighted Micic’s crucial impact in the final quarter, emphasizing key plays that helped secure the victory.

When it was at seven, Vasa had a drive, got fouled, and made two free throws. Then, in the next possession, pick and roll, and he hit a three,” Clifford commented on Micic’s pivotal moments in the fourth quarter.

Reflecting on his standout performance, former EuroLeague MVP Micic remained humble.

I don’t know, just the rhythm of the game. I always try to play my game as well as I can. Sometimes, it doesn’t go the best way, but that’s me. I’m always trying to get better, and today was a good day,” Micic said.

It appears that Micic’s success in Charlotte isn’t just about finding more space but also about adapting to a style of play that suits him better than his time in Oklahoma.

We play a style that suits me well, with a lot of movement and passing, and I try to fit in well. We have a lot of talented scorers on the team. Today, I may have been the leading scorer, but the key is to find the best option in the best position,” Vasilije Micic concluded.

Micic’s recent performances speak volumes about his impact on the court, evident from his impressive stats in March, averaging 15.4 points and 6.4 assists in seven appearances, all scoring in double digits.
