The Dallas Mavericks won their fourth straight game on Saturday night as they dominated the Washington Wizards 109-87. They did it on the second night of a back-to-back without three starters including star Kristaps Porzingis. The Mavs needed multiple players to step up and a fan favorite did not disappoint.

Boban Marjanovic always stays ready. He only played in 22 of the team’s first 47 contests, including being a did not play by coach’s decision in the last two. None of it stopped Bobi from coming in and having a monster night in Washington.

Marjanovic finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds, and one block in 24 minutes of action. He was five of 11 from the field and five of six on his free throws. Bobi can shoot over any player in the league. He had an impressive night as he controlled the paint on April 3.  Here is a closer look at his performance.

Boban Marjanovic steals the shows as Dallas Mavericks defeat Wizards

It did not take Boban long to get going on Saturday night. He had six points and six rebounds in the first quarter as Dallas led by five points. Marjanovic’s size was making a massive impact, and Washington did not have answers for the 7’4 big man.

Bobi just kept piling up the stats on April 3. He tied his season-high in points and rebounds on Saturday night. The Mavs outscored the Wizards by 14 points during Marjanovic’s 24 minutes on the floor. It was an impressive performance from the big man as the Mavericks picked up their 27th win on the season.

The Dallas Mavericks are back in action on Monday night as they host the Utah Jazz. Kristaps Porzingis will return and send Boban back to the bench. It will be interesting to see if his strong performance against the Wizards earns him minutes versus the Jazz.

The Mavs are going for their fifth straight win on April 5. It should be an exciting game between two of the top teams in the Western Conference, so fans should not miss it.
