Jusuf Nurkic Triple Double 10 Pts/10 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (1/16/2019)

Since I don’t feel like actually writing something insightful or funny about Jusuf Nurkic right now (I used up all my narrative energy on a story where Spencer Dinwiddie yells “It’s Dinner Time” while forcefeeding James Harden snack foods), I’m going to hit the proverbial “easy button” on this description and just give you a…

Jusuf Nurkic 25 Points Full Highlights (1/5/2019)

It seems like at least once a game, Jusuf Nurkic ends up on the floor clutching one body part or another as a pool of blood spreads from his prone body. Who says basketball isn’t a contact sport? He should start wearing a helmet so he can take those elbows to the face without missing…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (1/4/2019)

One game after acquiring the totally pedestrian and barely notable feat of a 5-by-5, Jusuf Nurkic fell embarrassingly short of the goal last night, needing four more assists, two more steals, and four more blocks. He also didn’t even get a quadruple-double. Or a triple-double. Or a double-double. A double-double is, like, almost an automatic…

Jusuf Nurkic 5 by 5 (24 Pts, 23 Rebs, 7 Asts, 5 Stls, 5 Blks) Full Highlights (1/1/2019)

“Yo, is something up with Jusuf?” asked Evan Turner to Meyers Leonard in the locker room before the game. He stood in front of Jusuf and waved his arms, but there was no reaction from the seven-foot Bosnian, who was staring straight ahead with a vacant look in his eyes. “He’s getting in the zone,”…

Jusuf Nurkic 21 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (12/29/2018)

It happened again. The Blazers met the Warriors in a rematch of their game three days ago and guess what? The Warriors still didn’t have an answer for Jusuf Nurkic. Kevon Looney and Draymond Green still couldn’t handle all 300 pounds of his Grade-B Bosnian Man-meat (B for Bosnian). This time around, Nurkic scored from…

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

This is what happens when you try to get by without a center, Warriors. You see what happens? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS. They tried guarding Jusuf “Maglić” Nurkic with Kevon Looney (who actually is a center but it didn’t work), and then they tried Draymond Green because everyone keeps saying that he can guard every…

Jusuf Nurkic 20 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (12/17/2018)

After Montrezl Harrell flagrantly fouled Jusuf Nurkic in the face (resulting in an eventual ejection for Harrell), there was no indication that there would be immediate fisticuffs. After the foul, Nurkic lay on the ground, checking his face for damage and testing the jaw mechanism to make sure it was still functional. Presumably Harrell walked…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (12/8/2018)

This video is cool because, out of Jusuf Nurkic’s four blocks, ALL FOUR of them were legit. NBA scorekeepers are notorious for handing out blocks that meet nobody’s definition of a block, but the shots that Nurkic swatted last night would meet anybody’s definition of a block. There’s nothing worse than going into a highlight…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (11/23/2018)

I’m having flashbacks to a game last year where the Damian Lillard/Jusuf Nurkic pick-and-roll was as unstoppable as it was tonight. Was that game also against the Warriors? Are the Warriors especially susceptible to pick-and-rolls? It’s all so hazy. I can remember clearly the games where Nurkic was used as a Jokic-esque elbow passer (no,…

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…
