Jusuf Nurkic scored five points on 2-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals against the Pelicans in Game 3 on Thursday.
Nurkic was unable to stay on the floor because he was being abused by Anthony Davis all night. He tallied four fouls and had a small stretch where he looked like he belonged out there, but for the majority of the night he was unplayable. His struggles with finishing at the rim were well documented all season and going against Anthony Davis only amplifies those issues. He logged 20 minutes tonight and that number might be too high as the Blazers are doomed if they leave him on the court with the way he's been playing.
