Aussie NBA star's heroic return after brutal blow


//

Aussie NBA star Thon Maker has continued to make a good impression following his move to the Detroit Pistons.

Maker was as influential as ever in the Pistons' 121-112 home win over the Wizards, finishing with five points, four rebounds and a block in 14 minutes of action.

Such was the Australian's influence, his team outscored the opponents by 15 points in his limited playing time.

The 21-year-old's highlight was an incredible defensive play which saw him block Wizards big man Bobby Portis' dunk attempt early on in the contest.

However, it wasn't all smooth sailing for the Aussie seven-footer, as he was left without a tooth after an inadvertent collision with Washington's Jordan McRae.

Maker's injury required seven stitches, but he only endeared himself even more to his new fan base by returning to the court following treatment.

Following the injury, fans on social media were full of praise for the Australian youngster.
