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,…

Jusuf Nurkic 20 Points Full Highlights (2/2/2018)

The “Point Nurkic” experiment has seemingly ended for Jusuf Nurkic and the Trailblazers. It was fun for a while right after he got traded, helping to build that Nurkic vs. Jokic storyline, but I think Portland decided they wanted the ball in Lillard’s and McCollum’s hands. All the time. And that’s okay. Nurkic can pass,…

Jusuf Nurkic 19 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/22/2018)

Jusuf Nurkic sat in the back row of the team plane. The mood was subdued; they had just lost, and his teammates knew that this game had meant a lot to him. Occasionally one of them would glance back to where he was sitting by himself, see his stony glare, and quickly snap back to…

Jusuf Nurkic 19 Points Full Highlights (1/18/2018)

I’ve been spoiled. After a recent NBA altercation where an actual punch was thrown, this skirmish between Jusuf Nurkic and Victor Oladipo seemed kind of weak. No one got ejected, all that happened was that Nurkic said some words while getting in Oladipo’s face and then Oladipo pushed him away. Lame. I prefer my sports…
