January was not kind to the Orlando Magic whose record took a serious hit last month, dropping them from fifth in the East to out of playoff contention. As one of the youngest teams in the league, who happen to be struggling offensively, Monday’s showdown with the Spurs is a steep challenge. Contests like this have become showcases for 7-foot-3 rookie Boban Marjanovic, which should delight Spurs fans. Averaging five points and three rebounds in limited minutes, Marjanovic has displayed a decent shooting stroke, solid skill set and enough mobility to hold his own against NBA talent. When Boban takes the court at home, witness excitement for a big man off the end of the bench not seen in San Anto since the late Jack Haley was riding shotgun with Dennis Rodman.
