Prediction for Dallas Mavericks acquisition Boban Marjanovic: Produces 20-15 game

Everyone is happy that Boban is back in Dallas because he is an important locker room presence, thanks to him keeping things light and energetic. Fans see his friendship with Luka Doncic, but everyone in the organization loves Bobi.

The 7’4 big man can make a gigantic impact on the court too. Former coach Rick Carlisle inserted Marjanovic into the starting lineup in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series against the LA Clippers, despite him making just three starts during the regular season. Boban averaged 11.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in 22.9 minutes per game over the final three contests. The Mavs came up just short, but Marjanovic had a significant impact on the series.

Boban is no stranger to putting up double-doubles in limited playing. He went for 31 points and 17 rebounds against the Denver Nuggets on the day that the NBA shut down in March 2020. Marjanovic produces when he is on the court.

New head coach Jason Kidd inserts him for a massive 20-point and 15-rebound performance this season. Things will break right as the 7’4 big man dominates the paint on both ends of the floor to lift the Dallas Mavericks to a win.
