Jusuf Nurkic played 17 minutes for two points, 11 rebounds, four assists and a block.
Nurkic only took three shots and had three turnovers so it’s a mixed bag. He isn’t fully healthy and it’s unfortunate because this series would be very different if he were. Nurkic makes such a big difference for the team in his defense, being an option in the post and the ability to grab boards. If he can play at least 25 minutes in Game 4, the Blazers could take one easily.
