Boban Marjanovic got the start for a resting Kristaps Porzingis Thursday and scored 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting, to go along with a career-high 20 rebounds, three assists, and three turnovers.
Free Boban! When he starts, and faces off against a team with a traditional big man, he becomes an unstoppable force. He's now put up 20 and nine and 18 and 20 in two starts since play resumed. Dallas draws a first round matchup against the Clippers, who do have a traditional center in Ivica Zubac, so Marjanovic could see some run off the bench, but don't expect him to play heavy minutes once the playoffs begin.
