Jusuf Nurkic 20 Points Full Highlights (11/1/2018)

Okay, here’s the deal: I know I teased at the beginnings of a new storyline where Jusuf Nurkic and Meyers Leonard team up to prevent Zach Collins from stealing their minutes, but I just really don’t feel like writing any more words right now, so that series of descriptions is on hold for at least…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (10/30/2018)

“Hello friend Meyers.” Looking up from his phone, Meyers Leonard regarded his teammate Jusuf Nurkic with narrowed, suspicious eyes. “Hey Nurk.” “I wanting to talk to you about minutes situation,” Jusuf said, knowing that this question would almost certainly provoke an emotional response from Meyers. “What’s there to talk about?” Meyers asked. “There’s not enough…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (10/21/2018)

Jusuf Nurkic is shooting threes now. You were probably already aware of that fact, but in case you’re still stuck in five years ago where not every big in the NBA shoots the long ball, I thought I’d make it clear. He was shooting them in preseason, and that’s carried over into about 1 attempt…

Jusuf Nurkic 18 Points Full Highlights (4/21/2018)

The season ends for Jusuf Nurkic and the Portland Trailblazers. A lot of stuff happened for them, but how much of it will be remembered even a year from now? Here’s my personal list, which is obviously skewed in favor of worse players and against “stars” (shade at Damian Lillard continues to be thrown). -Pat…

Jusuf Nurkic 20 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2018)

Mason Plumlee couldn’t contain Jusuf Nurkic. Nikola Jokic couldn’t contain Jusuf Nurkic. Jusuf Nurkic could barely contain Jusuf Nurkic. Jusuf Nurkic was, at points in this game, a completely unstoppable out-of-control force of rebound and flailing post move. I hate to compare them again, but Jokic plays the game in a very measured way. He’s…

Jusuf Nurkic 21 Points/4 Blocks/4 Dunks Full Highlights (3/30/2018)

Everybody hypes up these Bosniak vs. Serb/Croat vs. Serb/Any Balkan dude vs. another Balkan dude battles but I didn’t see anybody getting hyped for the Jusuf “Nurk Jowitzki” Nurkic vs. Boban Marjanovic battle that went down last night. Maybe I need to spend some more time on those weird forums and news sites where the…

Jusuf Nurkic 21 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (3/27/2018)

Jusuf Nurkic status: playoffs. Nikola Jokic status: not playoffs. Whoa. Does this mean anything? I am tempted to say it does, because I know the audience for this video will include a portion of Nurkic-only fans, but I don’t think it does. At most, it says that Nurkic has Damian Lillard on his team and…

Jusuf Nurkic 21 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (3/20/2018)

I’ve ragged heavily on Jusuf Nurkic in the past for being out-of-control with his scoring moves and for taking ill-advised shots. I’m not going to backtrack and say that he wasn’t doing those things in past games, because he definitely was, but I will acknowledge that Nurkic was under control and composed in this game,…

Jusuf Nurkic 27 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (3/12/2018)

As is often the case with Jusuf Nurkic’s high-scoring performances, this one features a lot of wild shots at the rim which happen to go in. Does he even bother locating the rim before throwing the ball up in its general vicinity? This video also features a lot of ragdoll physics as he uses his…

Jusuf Nurkic 24 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (2/8/2018)

Is it possible to set screens that are… too good? Too bone-crushing? Yes! Jusuf Nurkic had a whole bunch of turnovers tonight, too many I would say, but some of them were unfairly handed out because of the sternum-shattering nature of his screens. Those were legit screens, but because Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is a little baby,…
