Jusuf Nurkic shot 3-of-7 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line in Game 1 on Saturday and finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in just 24 minutes.
Nurk was no match for Anthony Davis and saw his minutes limited as a result. He split time with Ed Davis and Zach Collins, who also were no match for AD. Ed Davis did haul in 13 rebounds, and Evan Turner chipped in 13 boards, but the Blazers still came up short.
