Boban Marjanovic was terrific as the Pistons staved off elimination for another day, shooting 12-of-18 for 27 points and 12 rebounds in Friday’s win.
Marjanovic also hit 3-of-4 free throws and dropped two dimes in his 27 minutes. Stan Van Gundy mentioned that he’d like to get Boban some more minutes down the stretch and the cries of joy could be heard around the world. The points were a career-high and it’s probably the first time that Boban’s received legitimate playing time in a meaningful NBA game. If he sticks in this role as Detroit stares down a near-impossible road to the playoffs, he’s worth an add or DFS play every time out. If Andre Drummond ever gets rested, watch out. Marjanovic is begging to be unleashed here.
