hat does Boban Marjanovic give the Dallas Mavericks on the court?
Bobi is the perfect third center. He does not see minutes in every game, but when the Mavericks need him, the 7’4 big man delivers. Marjanovic can be a matchup nightmare for the opposition. His size and strength allow him to dominate the paint and the glass. Boban can shoot over any player in the league too. See him grab an offensive rebound over Nikola Jokic and put it back below.https://videos.nba.com/nba/pbp/media/2021/01/07/0022000120/338/af118e20-bbae-07bd-90e1-a51579cf50de_1280x720.mp4
Fans have seen him shine in spot starts. He had 13 points, 11 rebounds, and one block against the Pelicans on March 27 with Kristaps Porzingis out. Bobi had an unforgettable performance the night the NBA shut down in March 2020 when he dropped 31 points against the Nuggets in Mavericks victory. He played a key role in Dallas’ Game 4 playoff victory over the Clippers too.
Having a player on the bench that can produce monster numbers in a spot start is a massive advantage.
Marjanovic will always be a matchups option. He can be played off the floor if the opposition goes small and spaces the floor, but having a 7’4 big man waiting to check-in is a plus. Boban brings more to any team than just on-court production.
