Nurkic has been one of the most reliable big men in the league since his arrival in Portland. It’s been a match made in Heaven, so there’s no reason to believe he will slow down as the season winds to a close. He’s money when it comes to boards, blocks, and some points. Nurkic does hurt teams in the free throw shooting percentage category, but his strong contributions in the counting categories more than make up for that drawback.
