Pistons bench frantically shows Boban Marjanovic how to defend Trail Blazers’ final possession (video)


The Pistons brought Boban Marjanovic cold off the bench to defend the Trail Blazers’ final possession. With 0.2 seconds left, Portland, by rule, could only tip in – not catch-and-shoot – a shot. So, the 7-foot-3 Marjanovic had to do nothing but block the path between the inbound passer and the rim.

Watch how passionately Detroit’s bench communicates Marjanovic’s role to him. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who just put the Pistons up with a 3-pointer, is particularly enthusiastic.

I suppose, you could say everyone was telling him how to form a f—ing wall.
