Called back up from the D-League, rookie Boban Marjanovic scored 19 points to help the San Antonio Spurs cruise past visiting Miami. Pop had some jokes about it.
“He’s one of the most selfish players I’ve ever been around,” Popovich joked. “He shot it every time he touched it. He should apologize to his teammates for being so greedy. He just wanted to get his name in the paper.”
Marjanovic felt great about his paper worthy performance.
“This just happened tonight. I feel great,” Marjanovic said. “The game I played in Austin on Sunday helped me to feel confidence in myself. Of course, [playing] minutes helped me and this happened tonight. This is amazing. This is like adrenaline. You’re called and you hear the fans [cheering]. I feel great; warms my heart.”
