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;…

Pat Connaughton 17 Points Full Highlights (11/27/2017)

Pat Connaughton got a lot of people excited (it can’t be just me) when he scored 24 points in the Blazers’ season-opening massacre of the Suns. He’d been waiting in reserve for two whole years, and now it was finally time for him to craft some artificial wings made out of wax and fly towards…

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…

Noah Vonleh 11 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/20/2017)

Perhaps the biggest contribution from Vonleh this game was his eighteen rebounds, five of them on the offensive end. You might be thinking “…B-b-but DEE TEE BEE, why did you put his eighteen rebounds in the title of the video if they were so important?” What a foolish question. The answer is clear. I do…

Shabazz Napier 19 Points Full Highlights (11/15/2017)

Shabazz “Shabazzledazzle” Napier has been marginalized for almost his whole time in Portland. If that’s even the right word. Either way, hard to get minutes when you’ve got an All-Star ironman playing ahead of you at your position. Every minute Lillard isn’t in the game for the Blazers feels like wasted time. Just like with…

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…

Jusuf Nurkic 25 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2017)

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…

Jusuf Nurkic 28 Points Full Highlights (11/2/2017)

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…
