Jusuf Nurkic 25 Points Full Highlights (11/30/2017)

Jusuf Nurkic did his best to get his team the win against the Bucks, but he was fighting an uhpill battle against the combined efforts of Damian Brickard and C.J. McBrickum (not to mention Pat Brickaughton and Noah Vonafraidtoshoot). Theoretically, a matchup against John Henson and Thon Maker would be the perfect matchup to exploit;…

Jusuf Nurkic 29 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (11/24/2017)

The Nets are surprisingly good this season, kind of, but their current center rotation is really iffy. And it gets even iffier when they face a team like the Blazers who have a big banger manning the pivot. Nurkic is one of the most physical players in the league, and the Nets combined frontline of…

Jusuf Nurkic 21 Points Full Highlights (11/10/2017)

Jusuf Nurkic sat basically the whole 4th quarter tonight. I don’t really see why the Blazers coaching staff would do that. Ed Davis, his replacement, is more of a “solid” player, I guess. If you can live with the lack of offense he provides. But the real reason you don’t bench Nurk is because last…

Carmelo Anthony lingered outside the Blazers’ locker room after the game. He thought he heard a commotion inside, and he knew it wasn’t proper postgame etiquette to barge in unannounced, so he decided to wait until a player came out. After a few minutes of waiting, a frazzled-looking Jake Layman burst out. Carmelo moved quickly…

Caleb Swanigan approached Jusuf Nurkic after the game. “Hey, great game Nurk, Dame might have hit the game-winner but this win was all you, man!” Jusuf, who was seated at his locker, didn’t reply. He simply stared straight ahead, not moving or reacting to the rookie’s congratulations. Caleb turned to a nearby C.J. McCollum. “Yo,…

Jusuf Nurkic 19 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/1/2017)

Sometimes, no amount of DTB’s highlight magic can fix a video. The end of this particular sampling of Herky-Jerky Nurky highlights is a perfect example: in order to show the final of Nurkic’s three blocks, I have to end the video with Rudy Gobert picking up the blocked shot and powering in a monster two-handed…

Jusuf Nurkic 19 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (3/30/2017)

At some point it will stop being cute and start being annoying that Jusuf Nurkic is always trying to advance the ball himself/coordinate the offense, but for now, the fact that he does these things even though he doesn’t quite have the ball control to do so fits neatly into the narrative that the Blazers…

Jusuf Nurkic Career High 33 Points Full Highlights (3/28/2017)

Jusuf Nurkic knew exactly which back entrance he would use to gain entry to the Moda Center. It wasn’t strictly necessary to be so secretive, but the less attention he drew to himself, the more likely his plan was to execute flawlessly. He made his way to the door near the loading dock with the…

Jusuf Nurkic 12 Points/6 Assists/5 Blocks Full Highlights (3/18/2017)

Another game, another well-rounded performance for Jusuf “Nurkular Bomb” Nurkic. He had a reputation of impacting the game in many ways with Denver, but that reputation is being solidified as he has had a bunch of multi-faceted performances while with the Blazers. A 5×5 before the year is up is not out of the question,…
