Nemanja Bjelica 16 Points Full Highlights (4/18/2018)

Nemanja Bjelica’s role in this game, apparently, was to come in during garbage time and score enough points (14 in the final four minutes) to ensure that the Timberwolves didn’t end up with a completely embarrassing point total. Serbs will take this performance as a sign that Bjelica deserves more minutes in game three, and…

Nemanja Bjelica 17 Points Full Highlights (3/23/2018)

Nemanja Bjelica has yet to score in the 20-point range this season, and has only done so once in his career. Isn’t that interesting? No, it’s not, I agree, but something doesn’t have to be interesting for me to mention it in a description. It goes without saying that he didn’t score in the 20-point…

Nemanja Bjelica 17 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/13/2018)

When I saw “7” in the assists column next to Nemanja Bjelica’s name, I didn’t know what to expect. I did have a hunch, though: that all of his assists would be lame perimeter passes to Karl-Anthony Towns for jumpers. That’s what happens with these non-assisting tweener forwards. They get a bunch of assists, and…

Nemanja Bjelica Career High 30 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (3/8/2018)

I can’t take TNT broadcasts anymore. I can’t take it when they have their normal commentators, and I can’t take it when they have that “Players Only” jackoff sesh. Newsflash: joking about how to pronounce foreign names is no longer cool. It may have been cool when not half the league was of Euro origin,…

Nemanja Bjelica 18 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2018)

Why does Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau hate Nemanja Bjelica? More importantly, why does he hate the country of Serbia and all its people? Bjelica is shooting career-high percentages right now, he’s basically a perfect stretch four, and he’s in his prime, yet he only gets fifteen minutes per game. I get that Taj Gibson is…

Nemanja Bjelica 18 Points Full Highlights (10/24/2017)

Nemanja “Buhjellicka” Bjelica, coming into this game, was the best three-point shooter in the league. According to stats, obviously. Not, you know, the actual best three-point shooter in the league. Only a really insane Serbophile would believe that. Bjelica was 4 of 5, 80 percent, tied with Jamal Crawford and Mario Hezonja for tops among…

Nemanja Bjelica 16 Points Full Highlights (3/13/2017)

Sorry Serbians, but this might have to count as my designated Serbian-player highlight of the day, since Nikola Jokic only had 18 points. Dislike this video if you want, as a show of disapproval for my decision, but I can’t do highlights of EVERY Jokic performance. Besides, he’s getting to be kind of a good…

Nemanja Bjelica 16 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2017)

Walt Frazier has ruined me forever with regards to Nemanja Bjelica. Watching a Knicks-Timberwolves game, I heard Frazier pronounce Bjelica’s name phonetically: something like “Buh-jell-ick-a”. It was laughable in its incorrectness, but now that pronunciation has stuck with me, and I can no longer see his name without thinking in my head “buhjellicka”. Buhjellicka has…

Nemanja Bjelica 17 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2016)

We all suspected it at the time, but now our thoughts are confirmed: Nemanja Bjelica’s 24 point outburst a few weeks ago was nothing more than a mirage, a random aligning of the planets to produce a far above average scoring output. It wasn’t an indicator of Nemanja turning a corner, or getting more confident,…

Nemanja Bjelica Career High 24 Points Full Highlights (11/13/2016)

Does Nemanja Bjelica ever look happy? Like, ever? You’d think that these career-high 24 points would be reason to at least smile even a little bit. But no. Just the same semi-sad but mostly blank expression. Maybe he heard the Minnesota commentators ragging on him for not being a very good power forward and got…
