The Croatian rookie finally showed a glimpse of his true potential l in the best championship in the World.

Mario Hezonja finished the game of Orlando Magic vs the Boston Celtics with 17 (new career high in the NBA) points and 3 assists, helping his team win the match 119 – 114. He already had 12 points by halftime, yet he didn’t shoot so well in the last 20 minutes of the game.

Despite his enormous talent and rich skillset, the 20 year old Croatian international struggled to find his steps in his first months as an NBA player. Perhaps from now on, Hezonja will really show the true stuff he is made from. Especially considering the fact that he might play a lot more, since he also made a new career high in minutes spent on court, with 33.
