Clippers' Boban Marjanovic alters rim with monster dunk

  • We wanted him to see this thing through’ Nuggets commit to current path by extending coach Michael Malone

Every now and then however even National Basketball Association players are made to look small when a true giant walks among them.

Los Angeles Clippers center Boban Marjanovic is a large human being.

Tobias Harris led the way for LA, scoring 19 points on 6 of 13 shooting from the field.

Marjonovic came off the bench but dumped in 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds in just 18 minutes of court time in the Clippers' 107-98 defeat and looks like exploding in his fourth season in the league.

A huge reason why the Denver Nuggets missed the playoffs by one game last season was their road record. Boban Marjanovic had just dunked on Juan Hernangomez and Mason Plumlee off of his tippy toes - and slanted the rim in the process. He shot 6-of-8 from the field as well.

"What stood out to me was what I said before the year, which was, 'Can we close games?' and tonight we didn't do that", Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Denver found a way to keep the game in check though and took a 59-54 lead into the halftime locker room. Other notable stat lines were Harris, who poured in 20 points, and Barton who scored 19.

Clippers: Danilo Gallinari had 16 points while Lou Williams added 14.

The win capped off a good day for Denver coach Michael Malone, who received a contract extension after Wednesday's shootaround.

Pretty impressive, right? That dunk would delay the game, however, as Marjanović broke the rim.

The Nuggets now have two days off before they're back in action Saturday night in their home opener against the Phoenix Suns.
