Death by book?! Clippers big man Boban Marjanovic plays an assassin in “John Wick 3” and appears to die a brutal, yet creative death in the movie. In a trailer released on Thursday, fans got a quick glimpse of Marjanovic fighting Keanu Reeves in a library. Reeves’ character, John Wick, shoves a book into Marjanovic’s mouth. Ouch.

Nine of Boban Marjanovic’s 14 career starts have come this season, including in the three most recent games. Clippers Coach Doc Rivers appears committed to unlocking the 7-foot-3 center’s potential, experimenting with lineups against various matchups. That included Saturday’s test against the Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored a season-high 38 points against a three-center rotation that also included Marcin Gortat. Marjanovic played just seven minutes Saturday, five of which came in the first quarter when he had all four of his points — and when Aldridge quickly had seven points and two boards.
“I just thought, ‘Let’s see if (Marjanovic) can play,’” Rivers said. “We’ve gotta find out who he can play against and who he can’t. And Aldridge being a center who pops is a very tough cover for him.” In Rivers’ mind, it’s all part of the learning process. “This is the most minutes he’s ever played in his career, so he’s gonna keep learning,” Rivers said. “(Against the Lakers on Friday), every time we threw the ball in the air, it was like the whole team converged on him. He’s gotta learn how to make that skip pass — which he can make. He’s gonna learn how to sustain minutes. It was not a well-played game (against the Lakers), but it was a fast game for the first 24 minutes, and you could see after four minutes, Boban was done for a stretch. I kept him in for a while, which is probably bad coaching, but you know, he’s going to have to get used to that pace. He can do that, though — and then we’re gonna add the 3 game.”
