Mario Hezonja 19 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2019)

Nineteen points is Mario “The Croat GOAT” Hezonja’s highest-scoring game this season, despite the fact that he scored twenty or more six times last season. Again, this brings up the eternal question: is he getting misused by Fiz, or does hes just suck? As is usual for me, I don’t know the answer, but I…

Mario Hezonja 14 Points Full Highlights (12/17/2018)

Just putting it out there: I am not salty at all over the fact that Mario “Crobe” Hezonja dunked “on” Giannis Antetokounmpo and then, on his way back up the court, stepped over his vanquished foe’s dunked-on body laying prone on the hardwood. It’s easy to say that he’s not good enough to do stuff…

Mario Hezonja 17 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (11/28/2018)

I had hopes that a change of scenery would further elevate Mario Hezonja out of “almost bust” status and into “decent role-player” territory. It’s easy to forget now, but he was actually sort of good at times for the Magic last year. Almost kinda consistently, too. I was making fun of the Magic for not…

Mario Hezonja 15 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2018)

In the interest of transparency and openness, I must inform you of this stat from Mario Hezonja’s performance tonight before you watch the corresponding highlight video: he went 6-of-18 from the field. But if I wanted to fill my quota of Euros tonight, this had to be one of the vids I made. So I’m…

Mario Hezonja 18 Points Full Highlights (10/22/2018)

Big props to Mario Hezonja tonight for not only scoring 18 points (which is a good amount for him), but for accepting the task of guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo and not getting as obliterated as one would think he would. He couldn’t really stop him, because no one really can, but he did what he could…

Mario Hezonja 15 Points Knicks Debut Full Highlights (10/17/2018)

I’m pretty sure the Knicks commentators had never seen Mario Hezonja play before tonight. Not during the preseason, not during all the times the Magic came to visit, never. Otherwise they wouldn’t have been showering him with all the faint praise that they were. They wouldn’t sound so cautiously optimistic. Anyone who has watched Hezonja’s…

Mario Hezonja 14 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/8/2018)

Mario Hezonja might have improved quite a bit over the course of the season, but he’s not yet good enough to avoid being part of the “scrub lineups” that losing, tanking teams run at the end of games. However, I would say that in those same scrub lineups where he has to play with the…

Mario Hezonja 19 Points/1 Block Full Highlights (4/3/2018)

One could say that Mario Hezonja was in the… ZONE-ja tonight! I can’t believe that I never thought of that particular pun before. It’s been staring me in the face for all these four (actually three apparently) seasons and it took one of the Magic commentators saying it for me to realize its existence. Congrats,…

Mario Hezonja 23 Points Full Highlights (3/28/2018)

Mario Hezonja’s tenure with the Magic is drawing to a close. It’s possible that they resign him in free agency, but how likely do you think that is? As the young people say: “he gone”. It’s taken Hezonja almost the entirety of his rookie contract to show that he’s not a bust, but he’s finally…

Mario Hezonja 14 Points Full Highlights (3/24/2018)

29 other GMs around the league are going to be so impressed by this video. Well, maybe not this video particularly (though I know you’re reading this, Earvin), but the performance that this video showcases. Mario Hezonja only had 14 points, but he accomplished a prestigious feat: the “scrub by five”, where a scrub/role-player gets…
