Jusuf Nurkic picked up four personal fouls in 24 minutes on Saturday, finishing with 10 points, six rebounds and a block.
It’s been an up-and-down season for Nurkic, and that trend has been very obvious of late. He posted a monstrous 19 & 17 game on Thursday after scoring a combined 17 points in the two games that preceded that, with 20 and 22 minutes played in that pair. While Nurk Alerts have been few and far between, he should be able to play his way into late-middle round value by the end of the season. He’s simply too talented to keep languishing around the top-125/175 in 8/9-cat all year long. Ed Davis picked up the slack tonight, receiving 24 minutes and posting six points, 10 boards and two blocks. He’s a nice rebounding specialist in deeper formats.
