The slow-footed Marjanovic wasn’t the most natural matchup against Celtics big man Al Horford—Brett Brown admitted that he was experimenting with his roster to better understand it—but he did have his moments. Remember how Big Boban toyed with Little Anthony Davis last year? Small Al received similar treatment. Admire this post footwork (or the beautiful lack thereof):

In other recent Boban news, he made Star Wars sound very dirty.
