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…

Zach Collins 17 Points Full Highlights (10/29/2018)

While compiling this highlights package, I noticed some serious budding chemistry between Nik Stauskas (giving) and Zach Collins (receiving). Blazers fans would probably want chemistry between more important players, like more McCollum/Lillard chemistry or Evan Turner chemistry with something other than bricks. But this is still good. Stauskas gets to continue building a reputation as…

Zach Collins Career High 17 Points Full Highlights (10/25/2018)

Every team wants their own “unicorn”. I absolutely hate that term, just hate hate hate, and not because I dislike unicorns (the mythological creature), but because… I don’t even know why. Just don’t ever call Giannis a unicorn around me. I will look angrily at you, and then call the cops and tell them that…

Nik Stauskas 15 Points Full Highlights (10/22/2018)

There was a good chance, with the final game of the season ending with Nik Stauskas posterizing some Celtics scrub who shall remain nameless, that that was the last we would see of him in the NBA. Apparently, according to some interview, he thought so too. Sad, but he wouldn’t be the first high pick…

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…

Nik Stauskas Career High 24 Points Trailblazers Debut Full Highlights (10/18/2018)

Much like Summer League Aaron Gordon (SLAG) has become almost deified in my mind, so too has Backyard Unstoppable Nick Stauskas (BUNS). That pre-draft backyard video of him in the rain shooting three-pointers has remained stuck in my mind for half a decade now, standing not only as a testament to BUNS’ literally wet shooting…

Damian Lillard All 227 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2017-18 Season Three-ilation Part II)

Damian stared at the discarded abacus as if had burned him. Of course, nothing of the sort had happened. He had been overcome with a vision of something, a moment of startling clarity among the recent confusing events, but the origin of the abaci remained just as unknown as before. It lay there on the…

Damian Lillard All 227 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2017-18 Season Three-ilation Part I)

Damian Lillard woke up feeling refreshed and tranquil, but this was no surprise to him; tranquility was an easy state of mind to reach when one had relocated to a remote cabin in the Oregon Cascades for the off-season. Morning sunlight, filtered by a thick pine forest, served as a much more peaceful alarm clock…

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…
