Teammate has fantastic description for Boban Marjanovic

Boban Marjanovic

Boban Marjanovic is massive even by NBA player standards, and that makes him a phenomenal defensive presence off the bench some nights. But when he starts scoring points in bunches, that’s just plain unfair.

Marjanovic scored a season-high 19 points in just 13 minutes during the Los Angeles Clippers’ loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night. The majority of those points — 11 to be exact — came from the free throw line, proving that defenders had no answer other than to hack his 7-foot-3, 290-pound frame as he went to the basket. Boban doesn’t get into every game, but Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley said he’s like a “cheat code” when he does.

Marjanovic is an important role player, and we were reminded of that with the way the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft felt having to go up against him a couple weeks ago. Even though the Clippers ended up losing on Wednesday, having a teammate call you a “cheat code” seems like a pretty big compliment.
