Jusuf Nurkic 20 Points Full Highlights (8/24/2020)

Jusuf Nurkic scored 10 of the first 12 points for the Blazers. All good, right? WRONG! It would have been fine, I guess, for Nurkic to take over the bulk of the scoring duties for his team early in the game, except that the Lakers dropped 30 points while he was doing so, leaving Portland…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points/21 Rebounds/6 Assists Full Highlights (8/15/2020)

With the Blazers’ season on the line (well, partially on the line, since they needed two lose two straight in order to miss the playoffs), Jusuf Nurkic unleashed his inner Bosnian Beast with a supremely gritty, supremely BOSNIAN display of scoring, rebound, passing, and overall domination. And he did it right after finding out that…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (8/13/2020)

The Trailblazers did it. They squeaked by the Nets, they made the playoffs. Everyone for the past few years has been mocking the teams that chase the 8th seed for no reason, but now, the teams that are doing so are receiving nothing but praise. Not from me! I laugh at Portland’s feeble Cinderella-story, soon…

Gary Trent Jr. 22 Points Full Highlights (8/8/2020)

I’m not an expert on the psychological aspects of basketball since the things that are going through NBA player’s heads are so far removed from the things that are going through my head when I’m playing a game of basketball. I’m mostly thinking about how to get open for a midrange jumper (even though everybody…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points/7 Dunks Full Highlights (8/6/2020)

Is there a way to use the internet to tell me if seven is a career high in dunks for Jusuf Nurkic? I thought I was good at the internet but it turns out I’m not. And I haven’t yet shelled out for the new basketball-reference “Stathead” service (I don’t blame them for charging for…

Gary Trent Jr. 27 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (8/6/2020)

We need a nickname or term for all these players who are suddenly SHOWING OUT in the bubble. And the term has to involve the word “bubble” in some way. Something like “Bubble Breakouts”, but I want it to be more creative than that. Who do I have to pay to generate creative ideas for…

Gary Trent Jr. 21 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (8/2/2020)

Gary Trent Jr. is in that intermediate stage of hair growth where the hair is long enough to be tied back, but not ALL of it is long enough to be tied back. So he’s got the ponytail going on in the back but then he’s got some insect antennae sticking out the front because…

Jusuf Nurkic 30 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (8/2/2020)

Getting Jusuf Nurkic back from an extended absence to have him dominate games like he had never gotten his leg bones spontaneously blown into six (or more) different pieces is obviously awesome for the Blazers. But it’s also sort of a sad thing. Because when you see how quickly and easily Nurkic has integrated himself…

Gary Trent Jr. 17 Points Full Highlights (7/31/2020)

Gary Trent Jr. is cool and all, but I’ve been told by about a million different Blazers fans that Anfernee Simons is their young stud of the future, and he didn’t even play in this game. What the heck, Blazers fans? Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating about the “million” part. Maybe there are a million…

Jusuf Nurkic 18 Points/5 Assists/6 Blocks Full Highlights (7/31/2020)

This is Jusuf Nurkic’s first “real” NBA game since he did unmentionable things to his leg near the end of the 2018-19 season. What better way for him to return to the league and make his presence felt than by putting up the Nurkician statline of 18/9/5/2/6? Meanwhile, the forgotten man Hassan Whiteside, who was…
